A number of arrests were made overnight by West Midlands Police after a car cruising event went wrong.

  • Driving at excessive speeds
  • Driving in convoys
  • Racing
  • Performing stunts
  • Playing radios and horns
  • Obstructing other road users and public highways
  • Antisocial behaviour, including swearing and shouting

Traffic police have taken to Twitter to warn users about the dangers of car cruising and racing.

Updates to come.
