A police investigation has been launched after a man died following an altercation outside a pub in West Bromwich.
Officers were called to reports of a disorder outside the Queens Head pub, Church Lane, at just before 11pm last night (Friday 5 February).
A man aged 61 was confirmed dead soon after and the scene has been sealed off for further investigations.
West Midlands Police has finalised plans ahead of a protest by right-wing group Pegida UK tomorrow (Sat Feb 6) – and warned it will come down hard on anyone intent on causing trouble.
The force has been negotiating with organisers for several weeks and agreed a protest site in Birmingham International Business Park a short walk from Birmingham International railway station.
