Mobile coronavirus testing units are continuing to visit towns across Suffolk and north Essex as the second wave continues.

Mobile stations, run by G4S and organised by the Suffolk Resilience Forum, are visiting 10 towns across Suffolk, while further stations are also visiting Colchester and Clacton in Essex.

All of the stations run alongside the permanent regional testing site at Copdock, which remains open seven days a week between 8am and 7pm.

Every test must be booked via the government’s online coronavirus portal, or by calling the dedicated 119 number.

Suffolk is also set to receive a significant number of rapid result testing kits, which the county’s public health chief Stuart Keeble labelled as “extremely valuable” assets.
