A 17-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a taxi controller in Birmingham.

The victim, 37, was knocked unconscious at Embassy Cars in Oliver Street, Nechells, on 26 May and died a week later.

Police think a customer went to the firm's office "after being picked up earlier" and there was a disagreement.

The teenager has been released while investigations continue.
