A "significant amount" of suspected stolen car parts and "a number" of stolen high performance vehicles were found at an address on Kingsbury Road in the Stockland Green area of Birmingham.

Officers from West Midlands Police were prompted to search the alleged chop shop after a man, aged 40, and a woman, aged 30, were stopped by Northamptonshire Police in a suspected stolen car.

The pair were arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle.
