A company is offering Lateral Flow Tests (LFTs) for travellers at Gatwick Airport.

Chronomics said it is now offering Click and Collect Day 2 LFTs at the airport, as well as Fit to Fly LFTs sent to home addresses.

It said the Click and Collect service is now available for passengers to order online before they depart before simply picking up their LFTs in the North Terminal when they arrive back at Gatwick.
