West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner, Simon Foster, said: “I take the contents of this report extremely seriously and have, in particular, noted the four causes for concern relating to leadership, detainee risk, meeting legal requirements and guidance and use of force.

“It is essential that West Midlands Police has custody facilities that provide a secure and safe environment, for people properly detained by the police. That is necessary, to ensure trust and confidence in our policing service and the wider criminal justice system.  

“I will be holding the Chief Constable to account, to ensure that immediate action is taken to remedy these causes for concern, as a matter of urgency.”
