The drive-through facility will be at Harrogate's Old Education Offices on Ainsty Road.

The testing site is being organised by the Department of Health and Social Care which has warned people to not just turn up but make an appointment first.

Anyone who is showing coronavirus symptoms is being asked to register for a test on the NHS website.

Meanwhile, people who don’t have access to the internet can ring the new 119 service to book.

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

The testing site will return to the Old Education Offices on Tuesday, August 25.

Tests can be booked from 8pm the night before.
