Two teenagers, a man aged 18 and a 17-year-old girl, have died after being found in a West Midlands canal.

Police said it was thought to be a "tragic accident". The pair were found near Brasshouse Road in Smethwick.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to a towpath at about 19:20 BST on Wednesday after a report that two people had fallen into the water.

The teenagers, from the local area, were taken to hospital but pronounced dead after resuscitation attempts.
'Life support'

West Midlands Police officers have notified both families and are supporting them.

The force said it was trying to establish the circumstances surrounding the incident and investigating the sequence of events leading up to the deaths.

An ambulance service spokesman said: "Crews joined firefighters and police to locate two persons who had reportedly fallen into the canal in Smethwick.

"A man and woman were recovered from the water and crews worked as a team to deliver advanced life support at the scene."
