Police carrying out excavation work at an industrial estate in Coventry after a tip-off have found "nothing of note".

Officers began digging at the Hales Industrial Estate near the Ricoh Arena on Monday.

A West Midlands Police spokeswoman confirmed the search was now over. She said it was "doubtful" any further action would be taken.

The force originally said it was acting on information received from a member of the public.

The search was not linked to any ongoing investigation.
