Detectives have launched a murder investigation after a teenager was fatally stabbed in Harborne last night.

Police were alerted by ambulance colleagues who were treating an 18-year-old man for serious injuries in Tennal Road at around 7.15pm.

He was sadly pronounced dead at the scene soon after.
