Officers stopped a vehicle on St Georges Road and arrested a man on suspicion of drugs offences.

The 40-year-old was taken into police custody today awaiting further questioning, the force said.

It comes after armed police were spotted by residents on the road at around 11am.

A spokeswoman for West Midlands Police said there had not been an "armed response" to the incident, but the force may have been on the scene to assist officers.
