Police investigation launched following fatal stabbing

Police in Birmingham have launched an investigation this morning after two men were stabbed outside a Birmingham pub, one of them fatally.

The stabbings took place in the early hours of this morning (Saturday) at the Forge Tavern in Digbeth.

The two men, aged in their twenties, were injured and driven to hospital around 4.30am this morning. One of the men died from his injuries a short time later.

The second man remains in hospital where he is being treated.

Defective Inspector Harry Harrison from the force’s homicide team said: “The investigation is in the very early stages. We know the incident started inside the Forge Tavern and the two men were then attacked outside. Both were driven to hospital, where one man unfortunately died from his injuries, despite the best efforts of the emergency services.

“A murder investigation has been launched and I am appealing for anyone who may have been at the Forge Tavern last night or early this morning and who may have seen what happened leading up to the attack to call police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

Officers are this morning carrying out forensic and local enquiries at the scene and a post mortem will take place in due course
