A family friend of Akhtar Javeed, the man killed during a warehouse raid in Birmingham, has described the victim as "the most innocent soul I ever knew".

Asad Shan, who lived opposite Mr Javeed in East Ham, said he was shocked by the company director's death as "this was the last person I thought this would ever happen to".

Mr Javeed lived in east London but travelled to Birmingham during the week to run his fast food and drink warehouse in the Digbeth area of Birmingham.
