Testing centres, mobilised by the Ministry of Defence alongside with the Suffolk Resilience Forum, have been running alongside the main testing facility at Copdock Park and Ride for the past few weeks.

New locations for the mobile units have been added over time, with centres opening in Beccles and Sudbury in June for those showing symptoms of the illness.

Now, a temporary testing facility has been set up at the leisure centre in College Road, Framlingham.

Its first outing was on Thursday, July 2 and it returns on Sunday, July 5.
