BBC Birmingham has announced it will move out of The Mailbox and into new premises built at the former Typhoo Tea factory.

The broadcast centre at the heart of Digbeth's creative quarter is expected to be ready for staff by 2026. 

Director General Tim Davie said the move would "give our teams the best facilities and technology to serve audiences for decades to come". 

All the teams at The Mailbox - including Midlands Today and BBC Radio WM - will relocate, along with Newsbeat and Asian Network News which move to the city later this year. 

The site is next to Digbeth Loc Studios, the future home of MasterChef. 

The factory site in Bordesley Street is derelict after it shut down in 1978. Once plans are approved it will undergo a major regeneration into the broadcaster's most sustainable and flexible centre.
