As his cortege left Birmingham City’ St. Andrews ground, with fans and loved ones setting off flares and waving blue and white balloons, hundreds of mourners turned out for the funeral of much-loved community anti-gang campaigner Barrington 'Baz' Patterson. Boxing legend Frank Bruno was among the guests seen attending the service at St. Philips Cathedral.

A man with severe learning difficulties was among at least 20 people who were facing deportation to Jamaica on a Home Office flight scheduled for yesterday (Wednesday). Half of the detainees – held in Brook House, Harmondsworth and Colnbrook immigration removal centres – have direct links to the Windrush Generation and most arrived in the UK when they were children, campaigners claim.

The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) are on the lookout for disabled volunteers who can help trial a new journey planner aimed at removing barriers on public transport for those with long term health conditions.

The new service will look to allow better coordination of personal travel assistance needs, between the transport operator and the destination host, by alerting each stage of a journey when a person is on the way who needs additional support.
