An elderly man has collapsed and died in a Birmingham car park after arguing with a fellow driver.
The man, in his 70s, was taken to hospital after becoming ill in the car park of Tyseley Community Centre in Sparkhill's Formans Road just before 2:00pm yesterday.
A 44-year-old man from the Billesley area was arrested at the scene and remains in police custody.
We understand there was a verbal altercation in the car park – it’s not yet clear what sparked the argument or whether there was any physical contact between the men.
One of the drivers – a man believed to be in his 70s – collapsed at the scene and sadly was pronounced dead later in hospital.
I’m keen to speak to anyone who was in the park at the time or around Tyseley Community Centre and may have heard the argument or witnessed what prompted it.
