Star City evacuated as disorder breaks out

A number of arrests have been made following disorder at Star City in Birmingham tonight.

Police were called just before 5.35pm to reports that a group of people with machetes had arrived at the cinema within the complex.

Officers arrived to find a group of more than 100 people, and pockets of fighting broke out as police moved to clear the area.

A number of police officers have been assaulted, and several arrests have been made.

A dispersal order has been put in place giving officers the power to move on groups of people and arrest those who fail to leave.

Officers remain at the scene and are liaising closely with management at the venue.

Motorists are being urged to avoid the area because of a large build-up of traffic.
