Communities across the country are coming together to celebrate the values inspired by MP Jo Cox, who was murdered a year ago today. In the Midlands, at least 30 community events and street parties will take place this weekend to commemorate the anniversary of her death.
Today, pupils from schools in Birmingham formed a human chain spelling out the word "Jo" as part of The Great Get Together event. Rebecca Burrows reports.
The A458, Birmingham Street, Birmingham, is closed both ways.
Traffic is queueing in the area, it's due to a police incident between Hungary Hill and Stamford Road.
The incident near to the viaduct is also affecting traffic between Lye and Stourbridge.
An ambulance was called to one Birmingham city centre address almost five hundred times in just one year.
And new figures have revealed a patient was taken to hospital 89 times from the unnamed Edgbaston property by West Midlands Ambulance staff.
The full address has not been revealed, though it is believed to be in the city centre/Edgbaston region between Hagley Road and Edgbaston resevoir.
The Birmingham address takes over from a property in Alcester, Worcestershire, which received the most ambulance callouts in 2015 with 241 calls registered.
Three of the top ten addresses for ambulance calls in 2016 came from Wolverhampton, with three addresses accounting for 660 calls between them.
Addresses also responsible for a combined 442 calls between them were:
- West Bromwich
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman declined to comment on the figures. She said:
The trust cannot comment on individual cases due to patient confidentiality.
