Councillor Peter Howard, Head of West Midlands Fire and Rescue Authority, released a statement confirming Mr Sheehan's resignation.

He said: "Frank Sheehan has resigned from his post, for personal reasons, as Chief Fire Officer for West Midlands Fire Service with immediate effect.

"The Deputy Chief Fire Officer, Vij Randeniya, will be acting in the role of Chief Fire Officer.

"The Fire Authority has every confidence in the Corporate Board and the staff of West Midlands Fire Service who will continue to serve the communities of the West Midlands."

Mr Sheehan was appointed as chief officer in 2003.
