There are reports today that people from Brighton have been told to go to the Isle of Wight if they want a test.

A spokesman said: “Anyone who thinks they may have symptoms of Covid-19 can book a test in Uckfield today and tomorrow.

“Once you’ve made an appointment, you’ll be given details of how to drive to the testing site.

“Book your test here

“Appointment slots go live at 8pm the evening before – these may be limited at busy times; if this occurs Government advice is to try again in a few hours.”
