Blast at bomb storage site sparks Berlin wildfire

Explosions at an ammunition storage facility have caused a large wildfire in a forest in western Berlin.

The site in Grunewald forest is used by German police to store and detonate unexploded ordnance, often from World War Two, which continues to be dug up during construction.

Firefighters' efforts have been hampered by sporadic explosions which could be seen and heard miles away.

Questions are being asked about why the facility is in a forest prone to fires.

Around 140 firefighters are at the scene, and have set up a safety perimeter of 1,000m because of the ongoing blasts.
