  14. 'Lovely' mosque letter praised by community

    A letter offering "love, peace and solidarity" to mosque worshippers in Coventry has been praised by the community.

    Letter of support

    The anonymous letter was written in the wake of the terror attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester last week in which 22 people were killed.

    The note, written by a Coventry resident, urges its Muslim recipients to "stay strong" and ignore "the small-minded" people looking for a "scapegoat" for the attack.

  17. Hampshire steadily accumulate

    Hampshire 202-3 v Warwickshire

    BBC Coventry & Warwickshire Sport at Ageas Bowl

    Hampshire got through the middle session at Southampton without losing a wicket as Warwickshire's bowlers struggled to get life out of a slow pitch since taking three wickets in the first hour.

    The batsmen have looked comfortable although timing shots hasn't always been easy with the ball not coming onto the bat.

    Sean Ervine has been impressively productive under the circumstances, reaching his first century of the season.

    Warwickshire are missing Jeetan Patel, who's with New Zealand's Champions Trophy squad. That leaves Sunny Singh as their main spinner with Andrew Umeed and even Rikki Clarke offering support.
