West Mids Police Newton Street

"This photo is of the original Birmingham City Police tower on the Victoria Law Courts in Birmingham. The YL control room, known as Newton Street, was on the top floor of the courts and the FM 'Red' and 'Black channels were worked from there prior to Birmingham City Police being absorbed into West Midlands Police. The fittings fixing the tower to the roof were badly rusted and its removal was another job I managed. Myself and Pete Steel in the photo - no date unfortunately. A number of police stations had these single-piece welded painted steel towers fitted"
