PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Solihull MP Julian Knight has called on West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner Simon Foster to ‘quickly’ install a new police station in his constituency. He said Mr Foster had systematically removed officers from Solihull and called for the area to get its fair share of resources. Mr Knight’s comments came during an urgent question in the House of Commons yesterday in relation to the murders of Raneem Oudeh and Khaola Saleem in Solihull . A recent inquest found multiple failures by West Midlands Police ‘materially contributed’ to their deaths. 22-year-old Raneem Oudeh and her mum Khaola Saleem were stabbed to death outside Mrs Saleem's home in Solihull in August 2018. Janbaz Tarin - Oudeh’s abusive former partner - was sentenced to 32 years in prison in December 2018 for the double murder.

When I visited in the aftermath of the murders, the family raised concerns with me personally about policing resources in Solihull.

Solihull's existing police station on Homer Road “In addition, the previous Police and Crime Commissioner even threatened to close the main police station in the town centre. We owe it to all victims of crime that Solihull gets its fair share, and the Labour Police and Crime Commissioner should announce forthwith that Solihull will get a new police station, and quickly.” The urgent question was brought to the House of Commons by Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley Jess Phillips. At Birmingham coroner’s court last week, an inquest into the murders concluded that West Midlands Police officers had breached the force’s domestic abuse policy on a number of occasions. Police and Crime Commissioner Simon Foster also spoke on the case yesterday: “West Midlands Police have acknowledged the murders were amongst the most shocking and appalling crimes in our region in recent years and have rightly apologised and accepted that more could have been done to protect Raneem from the campaign of domestic abuse that she suffered in the months leading up to her death at the hands of the man who would go on to kill her and her mother. "I will be working with West Midlands Police to address the particular conclusions of the coroner and to hold West Midlands Police to account, to ensure that everything possible has been done, is being done and will continue to be done, to ensure that there is no repetition of the failings identified in Raneem and Khaola’s case and to prevent and tackle violence against women and girls and domestic abuse.” SURVEY: What do you think of the Smallbrook Queensway plans READ NEXT: Lidl supermarket to be extended with a new bakery in Wolverhampton £35 green bin collection charge for Sandwell residents to be approved ‘Delight’ at return of minor injuries unit to Solihull Hospital but councillors want it faster Unclean care home where patients were at risk of scalding themselves in Bilston Gay bar to keep 6am closing time after incident with metal barrier in Birmingham
