Two boys from the West Midlands have been arrested in connection with the death of a 16-year-old Walsall boy.

Ben Morutare was stabbed outside the Smethwick Home Guard and Old Comrades Club on 28 July.

West Midlands Police said a 16-year-old from Smethwick and a 17-year-old from Edgbaston were arrested on suspicion of violent disorder on Tuesday and have both been released on bail.

A 17-year-old has been charged with murder and several others are on bail.

Two other teenagers have been charged with violent disorder, one of whom is also facing a charge of perverting the course of justice.

Police said 10 out of 13 people had been identified from a set of CCTV images released to the public earlier in October.
