We have received a number of enquiries via twitter regarding the police presence around St Laurence Church in Northfield last night and this morning.

People reported a police cordon and forensic tent at the site.

Birmingham South Police have informed us that they were investigating a report of a possible sexual offence at the location. Following their investigations, no evidence has been found to substantiate the alleged offence and an arrested man has been released without charge.

We hope this is reassuring that there is no need for public concern.
