Reason for Authority (Brief Summary for Publication)
  An additional Sec 60 was authorised today (on top of the one yesterday), due to the murder in High St Walsall in the early hours of 28/01/23 where weapons were used to inflict injuries that are believed to be the cause of the fatality. Due to further intelligence and incidents reported during 28/01/23, including 2 individuals arrested with weapons indicating they were intending harm, and an additional incident this morning where and individual was run over and attacked with a weapon, both within Walsall, it is believed further incidents of serious violence could occur.
