A man found in a Coventry home died from "significant head injuries", a post-mortem examination has found.

The 36-year-old, who has not been formally identified, was discovered at a property in Hugh Road on 26 August by officers responding to a disturbance.

He was taken to hospital but died five days later on 31 August.

Two men have been charged with attempted murder. Police said the charges were being reviewed after the inquiry became a murder investigation.
