A senior detective has saved a life after tending to a main who had been "left for dead" in a Perry Bar stabbing last night.

Officers were called to Birchfield Road at the junction of The Broadway just after 9.15pm where a 24-year-old Winson Green man was found with multiple stab wounds.

The motive for the attack remains unclear at this time but work continues this morning to find the person or people behind the crime.

The man remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital this morning given details.

Anyone with information which may help Det Chief Insp Joyce with his investigation should call 101.
