West Midlands police said the victim was pronounced dead after officers were called to a branch of Paddy Power in Handsworth at 12.45pm on Thursday.

The force said in a statement: “On arrival at the bookmaker’s, a man was found with severe head injuries. Due to the extent of his injuries, he was pronounced dead at the scene. At this stage, this is believed to be an isolated incident.”
