Another man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after two brothers and another man were killed during the summer riots in Birmingham.

Haroon Jahan, 21, and brothers Shazad Ali, 30, and Abdul Musavir, 31, were hit by a car in the Winson Green area in 10 August.

A 21-year-old man, from Quinton, was arrested on Tuesday and bailed pending further inquiries on Wednesday.

Eight people, all male, have been charged with murder.

Four men remain on police bail pending further inquiries, having been arrested on suspicion of murder earlier in the investigation, the West Midlands force said.

A man has been charged with perverting the course of justice.

Mr Jahan, Mr Ali and Mr Musavir died as they tried to protect shops and homes from looters.
