Detectives investigating the deaths of three men who were hit by a car while protecting shops from looters have arrested two youths and a man on suspicion of murder.

West Midlands Police said the suspects - aged 16, 17 and 26 and all from Birmingham - had been detained by officers investigating the deaths of three men in the Winson Green area of the city.

A spokeswoman for the force also confirmed that a 32-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder early yesterday had been released on bail pending further inquiries.
