  3. Library staff acting as 'bouncers'

    Staff at a Coventry library are having to act as bouncers on the front door due to on-going problems with anti-social behaviour, a meeting has been told.

    Willenhall library

    An education scrutiny board was told staff at Willenhall Library are having to "shepherd people in and out", but other visitors have stopped coming altogether because of the problems.

    Police have also been involved in the issue.

    The library moved into the Hagard Youth Centre on Remembrance Road following a round of council cuts in 2016, but councillors were told the library location was not causing the issue.

    Head of library services Peter Barnett said: “I don’t have any major issues with the current site of Willenhall Library.

    “The challenges in Willenhall are more to do with antisocial behaviour issues that are much broader than just the library."

    A plan to switch to single-staffed libraries in other parts of the city has also been scrapped after pressure from councillors and a union, the meeting was also told.

  4. Your weather: A cloudy night with strong winds

    It will be a cloudy night with strengthening winds and lows of 3C (37F).

  5. Bobsleighers to get new medals because of typo

    After waiting six years to get hold of the bronze medals to win at the Sochi Winter Olympics, two West Midlands bobsleighers have had to return them - because they had a typo on them.

    Joel Fearon from Coventry and Stuart Benson from Shifnal were part of Great Britain's four-man team which was promoted to a medal position after two Russian teams were disqualified for doping offences.

    But, instead of reading "Bobsleigh four-man event", the medals were engraved with "bobsleigh 4 men event".


    The British team are expecting to receive replacement bronze medals in the next couple of weeks.

  6. Hospital restricts visitors after outbreak of sickness

    Visiting restrictions have been put in place on one ward at George Eliot Hospital in Nuneaton.

    Patients with flu have also been confirmed.

    Friends and family are being urged to avoid visiting Alexandra Ward until further notice.

  7. Two rescued from flood water

    Two people had to be rescued from flood water in Warwickshire overnight.

    One flood warning and several flood alerts remain in place around Warwickshire.

  8. Your pictures: Ahead of tonight's wolf moon

    The full Moon tonight, which is the first full moon of the year, is called a wolf moon.

    It will look a bit different as the Moon will drift into Earth's shadow and become a wolf moon eclipse, casting an eerie shadow across the Moon.

    BBC Weather Watcher Little Acorns was up early and captured an image of this morning's Moon in Southam, Warwickshire.


    BBC Weather's Matt Taylor explains a bit more about what we can expect.
