Fans of Coventry City Football Club are trying to come to terms
with the reality that their team has been relegated to the fourth tier
of English football, for the first time in 54 years.
Many are furious with the club's owners SISU who have presided over
the continued downward spiral.
Kevin Reide reports.
Another protest another match at the Ricoh, but this time
Coventry simply had to win.
George Thomas's goal gave them a glimmer of hope but Charlton
equalised and the one-one result sent Coventry down.
We just ran out of games.
Whilst it is majorly disappointing, it is not
a surprise and we have to move on, take it on the chin and rebuild.
Just a fortnight ago Coventry won
the Checkatrade Trophy at Wembley and it's thirty years this year
since they won the FA Cup under managers George Curtis and John
Today Mr Sillett told me he'd sobbed yesterday
when relegation was confirmed.
Relegation takes them to the lowest point in their 140 year history.
What would Jimmy Hill be thinking?
He rocketed the club from the lower leagues into the top echelons
of English football.
Jimmy Hill, oh dear.
He would be absolutely devastated, as we all are.
The football club is for everyone and
sometimes money can get in the way of that and this is the case we see.
They do need to go really.
In six matches they have only lost one in
all competitions so I think there is a glimmer of hope.
The club now has to attract fans to matches
against the likes of Accrington, Grimsby and Barnet, it will be
difficult as they won't be reducing season ticket prices.

The family of British student Hannah Blaydon,
who was stabbed to death in Jerusalem yesterday
say they are devastated by the senseless and tragic attack.
The 20-year-old, who's from Burton upon Trent,
was studying theology at the University of
Birmingham and was in Israel on an exchange programme.
Phillipa Hudson reports.
In a statement issued through the Foreign office, Hannah's
parents describe her as a talented musician, and enthusiastic rugby
player - the most caring and compassionate daughter.
She was taking part in an archaeological dig
and was attacked while travelling on a packed train
near to the Old City.
At the University of Birmingham this morning, staff have paid tribute
to an exceptional student.
Our thoughts at this time are very much with
Hannah's family and close friends.
We just want to pay tribute to Hannah and the excellent academic
career she had had up to this point.
She was pursuing her real passion in Jerusalem
around Biblical studies.
As Hannah's family struggle to come to terms
with her death a Palestinian man, who's thought to have a history
of mental health problems, remains in custody.

There was a surprise yesterday for staff at the Nuneaton
and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary when they woke to find their injured
Muntjac Deer had given birth.

found her unconscious in the road with head injuries.
She has since made an amazing recovery but her carers had no
idea she was pregnant.
Let's have a look at the weather forecast for the rest
