The brother of MBE-winning West End star Matt Henry and his friend have been revealed as the two men shot dead in a Range Rover on a West Midlands industrial state.

Will Henry, 31, and Brian McIntosh, 29, were both shot in the chest in a ‘gangland-style’ execution in Brierley Hill, West Midlands.  

West End star Matt, 41, who features in Kinky Boots is said to be ‘devastated’ by younger brother Henry’s death. 

On Thursday, police arrested a man on suspicion of murder in Carnforth, Lancashire, 130 miles away from the scene of the double shooting. 

He has been taken back to the West Midlands for questioning.

Police believe the men were killed two hours before their bodies were found.   

Horrified locals say the gunman may have jumped on disused railway tracks before fleeing down a residential street.

A post mortem  is scheduled to take place later today. 

Police have cordoned off the scene while they hunt for evidence.

Detective Chief Inspector Jim Munro, from West Midlands Police’s Homicide Unit, said: ‘This is a fast moving investigation, a real team effort involving officers who’ve worked around the clock since the discovery of the bodies to trace the person we believe is responsible.

‘The arrest is a significant development but our enquiries continue and I would appeal to anyone with information about what’s happened, or anyone who was in the area at the time and saw or heard anything suspicious, to get in touch.’
