The pop-up centre in East Brighton Park opened as a trial-run for easily accessible walk-in centres for people on foot or bike, as well as in their cars. The new centre follows the closure of a mass testing site at Brighton and Hove Albion’s Amex Stadium. People suffering from symptoms of Covid-19 have reported struggling to get tests over the last few weeks after national laboratories reached capacity. These pictures from the Brighton centre show short queues, but that has been the story at testing centres around the area, such as Tangmere in West Sussex.
