Coronavirus: Behind the scenes at a Leicester testing centre


A walk-in coronavirus test centre has opened its doors to give an insight into what to expect if you need to visit one.

The Belgrave Coronavirus Testing Centre has been processing 100 tests a day since it opened at the start of July.

Many of those being tested, via a swab, have pre-booked their appointment but the centre also tests some people without prior bookings.

The centre is located in Leicester, the first city in the UK to go into a local lockdown.
