A 23-year-old man was stabbed to death on the dancefloor of a Birmingham nightclub with cops launching an urgent murder probe.
Cops rushed to The Crane nightclub on Adderley Street in Digbeth just before 11.45pm yesterday after reports that a man had been knifed.
Medical staff fought to save him but he was pronounced dead around 30 minute later.
His family has been told and will be supported by specialist officers.
Detectives are viewing CCTV from the nightclub and urged any witnesses with information to come forward.
Cops said no one has been arrested at this stage.
Det Insp Michelle Thurgood, [object Window], gesê: “This was a young man enjoying himself with friends on a Boxing Day night out and our thoughts are with his friends and family today.
“We know there were hundreds of people in the nightclub at the time. While we’ve spoken to a number of them already, we still need to hear from anyone who was there and who witnessed or even filmed what happened.
“We believe that the victim was approached by a group of people, and was then stabbed, so we’re working hard to identify all of those involved.”
The scene remains closed today while officers gather evidence, and neighbourhood officers will be patrolling the area over the coming days to offer reassurance.
