The 19-year-old who died after his car crashed into a house in Birmingham at midnight last night has been named locally as Abdigani Jamac.

It happened on Little Francis Grove, and emergency services arrived to find the car on fire.

Four teenage boys were taken to hospital, but the driver of the car died in the ambulance. The others are being treated for their injuries at Birmingham's Heartlands Hospital.

Police are asking for witnesses to come forward, and particularly want to speak to anybody who saw a silver Volvo S40 in the area at around the time of the crash.
