Coventry police have deleted controversial Twitter photos of them 'trespassing' into people’s homes after facing an angry backlash.

Dozens of Twitter users posted negative comments in reaction to the stunt, which saw police letting themselves into the addresses and take snaps.

Since taking down the photos, a statement has been released.
