A 22-year-old man has been left with serious head injuries after an incident at a Tipton night club in Sandwell.

Police were called to the Triple S Club in Bradleys Lane, Tipton, just after 3am, following a report of a man being injured.

He was found by officers suffering a serious head injury and was taken to hospital, where his condition is described as critical but stable.

The club was sealed for a time whilst forensic investigations were on-going.

It is not known at this stage how the man suffered head injuries, but we are keen to hear from anyone who was at the Triple S Club Friday night and who may have seen what happened.

A cannabis factory containing £336,000 worth of drugs has been raided by police in Tipton, Sandwell.

Officers raided a three bedroom property at around 1.20pm yesterday, as part of an intelligence-led policing operation.

Inside officers found that every room including the loft was being used to grow the tropical plants.

A 26-year-old man who was in the house at the time was arrested on suspicion of drug production.

He remains in police custody this afternoon as inquiries continue.

This is another victory for local people sick and tired of criminals giving their otherwise nice area a bad name.

They’re not prepared to put up with this kind of activity and nor are we.

People may be under the false impress that this is a harmless crime. But let me be very clear, it’s not.
