Three men – Adam King, 23, from Kings Norton, Birmingham, Joshua Donald, from Kelsall Croft, Ladywood, and a teenager, 17, who cannot be named from legal reasons have already been charged with three counts of murder.

The funerals of the three men will take place later today in an open air prayer event at Summerfield Park in Dudley Road, Winson Green.
