Police have been given more time to question a man on suspicion of murder after a woman was found dead in a burnt out car in Erdington.
Officers responded to a call of a parked car on fire on Fentham Road at 8:30pm.

He remains in police custody for further questioning after police have been given extra-time from magistrates to question him.
The woman is yet to be formally identified, and a post mortem will take place this afternoon to determine her cause of death.
