Employees at fire-hit Holiday Inn will work from other hotels
Employees from the Holiday Inn hit by a blaze in Walsall will be able to work at other nearby hotels, the company has said.
Around 60 firefighters in 10 fire engines tackled the blaze at the hotel next to Junction 10 of the M6 on August 2, which started in the sauna area.

West Midlands Fire Service have since revealed the hotel did not have any sprinklers fitted, despite calls for some to be installed.
And a review is now being carried out on how the fire spread through the hotel.
The hotel’s management company is now working to find vacancies for its employees in other local hotels that they operate, a spokeswoman said.
It is still not yet known how long the hotel will closed for.
The Holiday Inn was bought by an Asian investment company in October 2017.
Although the price tag was not revealed, the hotel was on the market for offers in excess of £10 million.
Canada Life, which rebranded the hotel to a Holiday Inn in 2011, sold it to CL Capital, an Asian-based investment fund.
