The two men, a 36-year-old from Stourbridge and a 42-year-old from Rowley Regis, were arrested on Monday night and can now be held until late tomorrow night.

The 36 hour warrant of further detention was granted by Birmingham magistrates earlier.

Inderjit Singh Dhariwal was left with serious head injuries after an incident at Samsons Banqueting Suite in Rood End Road in Oldbury just before 2am on Sunday.

The 49-year-old had been attending a charity event at the venue.

He was taken to hospital in a critical condition and died of his injuries yesterday.


Mother of murdered teenager blames 'police inaction'

The mother of the murdered teenager Georgia Williams says she feels frustrated by the outcome of misconduct meetings which looked at how some officers dealt with her daughter's killer.

17-year-old Georgia from Wellington in Shropshire was murdered in an attack by Jamie Reynolds who was known to police from previous incidents.

Her mother Lynette says today's results, which saw one officer receive a written warning and two officers receive management advice, were not what she had hoped for.

She also insisted that she still holds the police responsible for Georgia's death.

Former Manchester United player Ruud Van Nistelrooy has reportedly said it would be 'fantastic' if Leicester City's Jamie Vardy broke his record for scoring in the most consecutive Premier League matches.

Van Nistelrooy was a guest at the Oxford Union on Tuesday when he reportedly made the following comments:

'I sent him a message of support last weekend on social media and I really meant it. It would be fantastic for him. I really mean it, records are there to be broken."

He is also said to have joked about hoping that Manchester United would win when Leicester City play them on Saturday.

"He can score one on Saturday, in fact I hope he does but hopefully United score three and win 3-1."

"But no, seriously, if he does it, I'll be delighted for him.'

– Ruud Van Nistelrooy
