West Midlands Police has released historic images of crime suspects arrested more than 160 years ago.

The series of police custody images believed to be among the oldest of their kind still in existence anywhere in the world.

The black and white photographs of Isaac Ellery and Catherine Legge were taken by the then Birmingham City Police back in the 1850s and are accompanied with handwritten notes of suspected offenders.
