The latest update about the Earlsdon Avenue North police cordon is that a Coventry man continues to barricade himself in his home for a third day in Earlsdon - (1pm) Tuesday 11 January.

Specialist police negotiators are continuing to speak to the man in an effort to bring the situation to a safe conclusion.

The impact on the surrounding streets continues with several businesses and Earlsdon Primary School remaining closed or restricted. Remote learning is in place for school pupils.

Police officers continue to visit each address within the outer cordon to update residents and offer support and reassurance, as well as answering any questions they may have.

Residents within the inner cordon have been advised how to contact the Police to leave or access their homes.
