A walk-in test centre has been announced for this weekend in Burnley.

The centre which will be at the Chai Centre on Hurtley Street is open from 10am-3pm on Saturday and Sunday.

There is no need for an appointment and you do not have to be showing symptoms.

The test centre is opening just four days after Matt Hancock has blamed the strained test system on people getting tests if it is not necessary.

The Department of Health and Social Care has stated however that this does not apply to areas of high risk.

Tests are free and the centre is open to all people over 5 years of age.

The test centre on Centenary Way - opposite Burnley bus station - will remain open seven days a week between 10am and 3pm.
