Three people have been charged with the murder of a 16-year-old boy who was stabbed in Birmingham.

Odwayne Anthony Barnes died two days after he was stabbed near a bus stop outside Matthew Boulton College at about 1500 GMT on Monday 5 March.

Two men, aged 18 and 20, and a 16-year-old boy, all from Birmingham, are due to appear before magistrates in the city on Monday.
