A 23-year-old man is seriously ill in hospital after being attacked near a Birmingham nightclub.

The man was with his girlfriend in a car park on Tennant Street behind Gatecrasher at about 00:30 GMT when he was set upon.

It is understood his attacker, believed to be an Asian male, was in a car with several other men before getting out to confront the couple, police said.
