A teenage boy has been charged with the murder of a 17-year-old male after a stabbing in Birmingham last week.

A murder investigation was launched after Akeem Bailey, 17, was found with serious injuries in Ladywood on October 30.

The teenager was discovered at around 6pm on Springfield Street and immediately taken to hospital where he remained in an induced coma.  

Unfortunately his injuries were unsurvivable and he died on Friday night.

A 17-year-old boy, who was also injured and taken to hospital has since been discharged.
