Work begins to remove the canopy

Work has begun to remove the canopy over Coventry's Lady Godiva statue.

The city council took the decision to remove the canopy after a survey revealed residents did not like the look of it.

The work began overnight and it will be a couple of weeks before the canopy is removed completely.

The council has moved to reassure residents the work will not affect the city's Christmas lights switch-on scheduled for 16 November.
