That I am originally from Wolverhampton? I also spent half my life in Stoke on Trent and Moseley in Birmingham. Although my everyday accent is a mixture of RP and all the other places I have lived..I can give you a genuine Black Country or Birmingham accent. Variations are obviously possible from the softest to the strongest.
I am the voice of Birmingham City Council for their telephone System,, NHS choices Solihull plus many more companies from Worcester to Dudley.
When the new 111 service was introduced to Birmingham and the West Midlands I was their obvious choice of voice, as my accent is genuine, and local people can relate to it.
Here is a recent radio advert for Birmingham Community Trust made for Maple Street Studios

Trails for Disney TV South Afica. Become the voice of a brand of Dutch milk for several African TV commercials. The voice of new Internet radio station Hyderadio. Have the lovely opportunity to be the narrator for all the stories published in the online edition of The Simple Things magazine and voice hundreds of ads for radio, and countless IVR messages and short film projects, including several for Barclay’s bank.
I’ve had great fun being interviewed by several magazines and too:)
