A one-year-old boy has been killed in a crash after a recovery truck hit a wall which fell on him in Birmingham.

West Midlands Police say they were called to Queens Road at around 5pm on Monday 16 March following reports a recovery truck had hit a wall, which had then fallen on the child.

The boy - who has not been formally identified - suffered a serious head injury and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A stretch between Sedgemere Road and Broadstone Road has reopened and a cordon has been lifted.

Inspector Paul Bennett said: "This is a very tragic set of circumstances - words cannot describe what his family are going through and our thoughts are with them at this time.

"Specialist officers will be supporting the boy's family and - as with all serious and fatal collisions - an investigation has been launched to establish the cause."

Police are appealing for anyone with information to get in touch.
