An eighth person, a 17-year-old boy, has been charged with murder after the fatal shooting of a licensee outside his bar in the West Midlands.

Swinder Singh Batth, 47, was shot on 28 July outside Gavin's Sports Bar in The Orchard, Bilston, Wolverhampton, and pronounced dead in hospital.

The 17-year-old, from Bilston, was due to appear at Wolverhampton Magistrates' Court on Monday, police said.
