A man and a woman have been arrested in Birmingham after a hit and run in which a man was severely injured.

A 49-year-old man was hit by a silver car believed to be a Nissan Micra, at 14:20 GMT on Wednesday, near Adderley Park train station, Bordesley Green.

A 38-year-old man and 26-year-old woman were arrested at an address in the Sparkbrook area of the city.

An abandoned car was later found abandoned.
