But locals who are honest about where they live have been told to travel hundreds of miles to another site to get tested.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock has urged the public not to “game the system” by changing their postcode to try and get a local test.
He said: “It’s incumbent upon all of us to take a responsible approach and tell our constituents that tests are available in large numbers, that the average distance travelled is 5.8 miles and that people should take this seriously and not game the system.”
