Bristol Road has now reopened following a lengthy closure, but a police scene remains in Mill Pool Way.

Detective Inspector Stu Mobberley, who is leading the West Midlands Police investigation, said: “We’ve made rapid progress overnight having worked with colleagues at Nottinghamshire Police to arrested three men we believe were involved in the stabbing.

“Our enquiries continue and we are actively seeking at least one other person.

“I still really need to hear from anyone who was in Mill Pool Way, Bournbrook, at around 4-5pm yesterday and who saw what happened or any disorder to get in touch.

“They may have seen something important so please call.”
