US-style gunshot sensors installed in Birmingham
Sensors used in the US to detect gunshots being discharged have been installed in areas of Birmingham with a high number of firearms incidents.
It is the first time the Shotspotter Gunshot Location System - which can pick up gunshots within a 25m (82ft) radius - has been deployed in the UK.
West Midlands Police said the sensors had been placed high up on buildings in north-west areas of the city.
Mark Worthington reports.
