Body of a man found in Bilston

Detectives have launched a murder investigation after the body of man was discovered at a property in Wolverhampton.

Officers were called to Beckett Street, The Lunt in Bilston, just after 6.30pm last night (Sunday 9 September) where a 42-year-old man was found with serious injuries.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and a post mortem examination will take place today to try and establish the cause of his death.

Two men, aged 42 and 34, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and are currently in police custody for questioning.

A cordon remains in place and house to house enquiries are continuing.

Detective Inspector Paul Joyce, from the homicide team at West Midlands Police, said: "We are working to establish the circumstances around the sad death of this man.

"We understand there may have been a disorder in the street earlier that afternoon and whether this is connected forms one line of enquiry.

"I would urge anyone who saw this, or has any other information which can assist our investigation to contact us as soon as possible."
