A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “A man and woman estimated to be in their 30s had suffered very serious stab wounds.  Sadly, despite best efforts by ambulance staff, it was not possible to save either of them and they were confirmed dead at scene.

“Another woman in her 50s was taken on blue lights to the major trauma centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham with potentially life threatening stab wounds to her stomach.  Aircrew paramedics traveeled with the patient to provide additional treatment en route.

“A police officer who was sent to the scene suffered a minor injury.  He was assessed by ambulance staff and was discharged after treatment.”
