A drinker was savagely beaten to death outside a bar in Birmingham as horrid onlookers allegedly filmed the attack on their phones.

The 50-year-old victim, who has not been named, was savagely beaten around the head during a night out in the city's Brindley Place.

Dozens of onlookers are believed to have filmed the attack which happened outside the Slug and Lettuce and All Bar One venues at 1.30am on Sunday, August 29.
