"We also engaged with the public, encouraging people to enjoy their night out responsibly and to not put others at risk with aggressive or violent behaviour," the statement said.

"This weekend we are once again reminding people to go out and have a nice time safely. Please remain mindful of others when you're out enjoying our wonderful city's night life," West Midland Police have urged.
