A DRIVE-through coronavirus testing centre is to open at Heathrow.

The centre will be at the E2 staff car park on the Eastern Perimeter Road, near the Kuehne and Nagel cargo centre.

Anyone with a continuous cough, high temperature or loss of smell or taste can book an appointment on the NHS website to be tested.

Essential workers can book a test on the GOV.UK essential worker self-referral portal.

The site joins the existing network of testing locations around the country.

It is being operated in partnership with Sodexo and will offer assisted and self-administered tests. Those tested will receive their results within a few days.
