One of the victims of a multi-vehicle crash in Birmingham that left six people dead had previously been jailed following a 130mph police chase.

Police reached speeds of 130mph on the M6 South in July last year in pursuit of Kasar Jehangir, who was sentenced to three years in November 2016 after pleading guilty to dangerous driving. He was released earlier in 2017.

Kasar Jehangir, 25, and Mohammed Fasha, 30, and Tauqeer Hussain are the latest confirmed dead after major road accident.

It's not clear whether or not Kasar Jehangir was driving on the night of the crash.

A fourth man, aged 22, was also seriously injured and remains in hospital.
