Two men arrested following a stabbing and shooting incident in Wolverhampton have been bailed by police.

There were reports of shots being fired between two Fiestas travelling on Deans Road, in broad daylight, just after 5pm on Friday.

Within minutes, there was a 'disorder' on Willenhall Road near to the Shell garage on the junction with Neachells Lane.

A car was found abandoned by police with damage to one of its windows and later the same day a 20-year-old man took himself to hospital with a stab wound to the leg, where he was arrested on suspicion of violent disorder.

West Midlands Police spokesman Craig Hughes said: "Both men have been bailed pending further enquiries.

"Anyone with information is asked to contact the force via live chat at between 8am and midnight or call 101 anytime. Quote crime reference number 20WV/200942C/19."
