Sadly, two passengers from the MG - one aged in her 40s and one in her 70s - were pronounced dead at the scene.  Four other people – including a young child – were taken to hospital with injuries which are not believed to be life-threatening.

West Midlands Police said the driver of the BMW left the scene but a short time later a man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He is currently in hospital and the force said he will be spoken to when deemed medically fit to be questioned.

Another man has also been arrested for assisting an offender and is currently in custody for questioning. The quad bike also left the scene and police are carrying out enquiries to identify and trace the rider.

"It remains vital that we fully establish exactly what happened with all the vehicles involved, so I’d ask the rider of the quad bike to get in touch as I believe you are a key witness to the tragic events which have occurred.”
