Bournemouth pensioner, 73, is told to take 1,000-mile round trip to his nearest Covid test site... in SCOTLAND

Stephen Feltham, 73, a type two diabetic with high blood pressure, hoped to book an appointment at his nearest test centre in Poole in Dorset.

But he was told there was no availability for him there and he instead could go to Perth in Scotland - a round trip of 1,000 miles.

Luckily the grandfather-of-six didn't have to make the exhaustive trip, which would have taken about 16 hours.
