A West Midlands Police spokesman said: "Police were called to Queen Street in Wolverhampton city centre just before 6am this morning to a report of a man acting suspiciously, shouting and banging on doors.

"The 48-year-old man was Tasered by officers after he failed to comply. He will now be taken into police custody."
