Two teenagers have been charged in connection with the murder of boy outside a West Midlands club.

Ben Morutare, 16, from Walsall, died in hospital after being stabbed in the leg outside the Smethwick Home Guard and Old Comrades Club on 28 July.

The boys, who are both aged 17 and from the Ladywood area of Birmingham, have been charged with violent disorder.

They were arrested on Thursday morning and will appear at Wolverhampton Magistrates' Court on Saturday.

One of the boys is also accused of perverting the course of justice.
