Men 'fired at police officers'


Six people have been convicted of firing shots at police officers during last summer's riots in Birmingham.

They were accused of starting a fire at a pub in Aston before blockading the nearby A34 and firing at police. The force's helicopter was also shot at.

They deliberately lured officers to the scene to attack them, police said.

Det Insp Andy Bannister from West Midlands Police described how the mob carried out their attack.
