Tickets to a charity Ghost Hunt at the old Steelhouse Lane Lock Up are on sale for £75 and among those who spent time in it, before it closed, was notorious serial killer Fred West in the 1990s.
The Peaky Blinders were also held there - but after some comments were posted on social media Fred West's name was removed from the advertising.
In a statement, West Midlands Police said: "Steelhouse Lane is where Fred West was held in custody in the 90s and his name was used alongside the Peaky Blinders to promote this worthy cause.
"On reflection the organiser of the event has agreed that using his name was insensitive and has therefore removed it from any advertising of this event."
Anger as two ambulances attacked with bricks
Two ambulances have been attacked with bricks and left out of action, West Midlands Ambulance Service has said.
In both incidents, the vehicles were targeted as they went through the underpass on Birchfield Road at the junction of Aston Lane in Birmingham - firstly at about 14:30 yesterday and then again at about 15:00.
Both vehicles are now off the road and it will cost hundreds of pounds to repair them, the ambulance service said.
Emergency Services Operations Delivery Director, Nathan Hudson, said: "It is hard to put into words how angry and disappointing these incidents are.
"Throwing a brick at any vehicle is dangerous and idiotic, but when it is an ambulance responding to an emergency, it beggar’s belief."
Arena renamed yet again
BBC Midlands Today
One of the region's largest concert venues - the Genting Arena - is changing its name again.
The NEC Group is rebranding the site and calling it Resorts World Arena, so it fits with the leisure and entertainment area of the same name - which opened three years ago.
It used to be called the LG Arena, before being renamed in 2015.
Lorries 'racing each other' claims dismissed as 'absurd'
Local Democracy Reporting Service
Claims that lorries are "racing each other" on motorways in the West Midlands have been dismissed as "absurd".
The allegation was made at a recent meeting of a West Midlands Combined Authority's transport committee meeting by councillor Diana Holl-Allen.
In a discussion around lorries and easing congestion, she said: "We’ve got to stop them. They seem to enjoy this, every now and again. Whether they get tired I don’t know, but lots of them are racing each other."
Responding, the Road Haulage Association said HGV drivers are "highly trained" and "lorry drivers don’t do joyriding”.
After losing in the One-Day Cup final to Hampshire at Lord's, then being beaten on home soil in the T20 Blast quarter-finals by Lancashire, Kent have twice been closer to winning something in 2018.
"We've had two other chances to win silverware this season and missed out," said head coach Matt Walker. "We now have a third opportunity which is a very nice situation to be in.
"We go to Birmingham knowing that whoever wins takes the spoils, which is exciting. In some ways the pressure if off us now, so I just want the guys to go there, express themselves and do themselves justice."
It will simply add to the sense of theatre at Edgbaston that Kent have Allan Donald as part of their backroom team - as assistant coach.
The 51-year-old Warwickshire and South Africa fast bowling legend was appointed alongside Walker in January 2017, but was unable to take up his job until this year because of work permit issues. And this will be his first return to Edgbaston since then.
Now for the cherry on top - Patel
Warwickshire v Kent - match starts 10:30 BST
Warwickshire skipper Jeetan Patel says promotion back to Division One at the first attempt with the Division Two title this week would be 'the cherry on the top'.
"We've now forced a final," he told BBC WM ahead of the second v first shoot-out with Kent at Edgbaston. "A one-off game, which is all about expressing ourselves and making sure we do our jobs well.
"We've got to take a lot from what we've done. The ultimate aim was always promotion and we've worked so hard to get to this position. Everybody's been on the same page.
"It's not easy this division. A lot of results - and we forced the ones that we needed our way. Now we have one big push to go and the cherry on the top would be silverware."
