The drive-through facility will set up at the Seamer Road park and ride site tomorrow.

It is being organised by the Department of Health and Social Care who have warned people to not just turn up but make an appointment first.

There are two ways to do this depending on which testing group you are part of.

Anyone who is showing coronavirus symptoms should register for a test on the NHS website.

People who don’t have access to the internet, or who have difficulty with the digital portals, can ring the new 119 service to book.

Key workers and members of their household should register for a test on the government website.

Tests can be booked here from 8pm tonight.

Testing will be available in Whitby at the park and ride site off Guisborough Road on Thursday.

Tests can be booked for Whitby from 8pm tomorrow (Wed) night using the same link.

Figures from the Government show that there has now been more than three weeks since the last confirmed coronavirus case in the borough.
