Man arrested over Greets Green Social Club murder

A 43-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after another man died following a disturbance at a West Midlands social club.

Police said officers were called to Greets Green Social Club, Whitehall Road, West Bromwich, about 22:20 GMT on Sunday.

A 42-year-old man was taken to hospital where he died shortly afterwards.

Det Ch Insp Angie Whitaker asked anyone who was in the club on Sunday or had information to contact police.

"The disturbance took place inside the club, which was busy all day yesterday due to the two major sporting events of rugby and football and also a family celebration taking place at the location," she said.

A post-mortem examination will take place to establish the man's cause of death.

Officers were carrying out forensic tests at the scene.
