Police investigating the murder of a man stabbed outside a Wolverhampton nightclub have arrested four men.

Thomas Kirwan, aged 23, a Shropshire factory worker, died outside the Uberra Club earlier this month.

West Midlands Police said three 18-year-olds and one 19-year-old were arrested in the Wolverhampton area.

Officers are still appealing for information and trawling CCTV footage from the night of 8 July when trouble flared outside the club.

There was an altercation and several people were asked to leave but Mr Kirwan was stabbed, police said.

His mother Emer Kirwan has described her son, who worked at Bridgnorth Aluminium, as her "rock".

Mr Kirwan had plans to marry his 21-year-old girlfriend of six years, Jade Elwell.

Det Insp Warren Hines said: "I would urge anyone who was at the scene of the disturbance to come forward and speak to us."
