A NEW coronavirus testing site has opened in Padiham.

It is open at Padiham Tesco Car park between today (January 18) and Wednesday then January 25 to 27 and February 1 to 3.

Burnley Council posted a statement on social media.

It said: "You must book in advance.

"Tests can be booked online through www.gov.uk.

"You can still book if you don't have any symptoms.

"The system will ask if you have symptoms and if you click "no" it will ask a number of questions until it asks "why are you asking for a test?" and whether your local authority has asked you to get tested, at which point you should tick "yes" and an appointment will be made for you to be tested."
