A man who drove to a police station with a dead body in his car has appeared in court charged with murder.

West Bromwich police station, where the body was found

Sukhwinder Singh, aged 40, was remanded in custody by Walsall magistrates to appear at Wolverhampton Crown Court on Tuesday.

Singh, of MacDonald Close, Tividale, spoke only to confirm his name and address.

Wearing a grey t-shirt and matching jogging bottoms Singh, who was escorted into court by two guards, needed a Punjabi translator for the five-minute hearing.

The corpse was in the passenger seat of a BMW when it pulled up at West Bromwich police station's car park on Moor Street at around 10.20am on Thursday.

The victim, who was named in court on Saturday for the first time as Harish Kumar, will now undergo a post-mortem examination.

Officers said they suspect he died 'some time' before being driven to the police station.

Police are examining CCTV and street cameras in a bid to piece together where the car had travelled from before arriving in West Bromwich.

The station's front office was closed for a short time as the scene was cordoned off.
