A man was left seriously injured in a suspected machete attack in Heath Town on Tuesday, just weeks after 15-year-old Keelan Wilson was stabbed to death in Merry Hill.

Just hours before the teenager's murder, violence flared in the city centre between a group of machete-wielding men.

The violence came as leading police bosses say they were working to curb the threat of knife crime.

West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner, David Jamieson, said he was aiming to tackle violence.

He claimed £2m is being invested in mentoring schemes to help young people make the right life choices and defuse gang criminality.
