Man held after driving to police station with body in car

The 40-year-old BMW driver was arrested and the station’s front office closed.

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after pulling up outside a police station with a body in the car.

West Midlands Police said a BMW parked up outside West Bromwich police station at about 10.20am on Thursday.

On the front passenger seat was the body of a man.

The 40-year-old driver was arrested and the station’s front office closed, as part of the scene cordon.

Detective Inspector Harry Harrison, of West Midlands Police, said: “A post mortem examination will take place in due course – but at this early stage we suspect the man died some time before the body was driven to West Bromwich.

“The driver has been arrested and we are examining CCTV and street cameras in a bid to piece together where the car had travelled from before arriving.”
