West Bromwich police station front office was closed temporarily as the scene was cordoned off to preserve evidence.

West Midlands Police Detective Inspector Harry Harrison, from the force’s Homicide Team, said: “A post mortem examination will take place in due course – but at this early stage we suspect the man died some time before the body was driven to West Bromwich. 

“The driver has been arrested and we are examining CCTV and street cameras in a bid to piece together where the car had travelled from before arriving in West Bromwich.”
