Police were called on Saturday at 12.42pm – and soon put up a 300ft long cordon along the road. Later specialist explosive ordnance disposal officers arrived with a robot to check the package while homes were evacuated.

Officers examined a box containing a suspicious device, but it was later found to be non-explosive and the cordon was eventually lifted around 1.30am on Sunday.

Today West Midlands Police confirmed he had been released on bail pending further investigation.
