Latest news on Earlsdon Avenue North police cordon

Published Wednesday, 12 January 2022

The Earlsdon Avenue North police cordon remains in place – Wednesday 12 January.

The police are continuing to speak to the resident involved in an effort to bring the situation to a safe conclusion.

Several businesses and Earlsdon Primary School remain closed or restricted and remote learning is continuing for school pupils, so children are in regular contact with teaching staff.

The Earlsdon Carnegie Community Library remains open during the daytime for Police officers and to offer support to residents. Library volunteers and Council libraries staff are also helping at the venue.

A smaller number of residents within the inner cordon are able to keep in touch with the Police so that they can leave or access their homes – or for any other advice and assistance. A few people are being housed by the Council in temporary accommodation.

The police and partners including the Council recognise that there is continued disruption to everyone within the cordon surrounding Earlsdon Avenue North, and have again apologised and stated that their priority remains the safety of those involved.

The co-operation of residents has been greatly appreciated. We will aim to provide any further updates to as the situation develops.
