Covid-19 testing centre in Sunderland unstaffed

Dozens of people who booked a coronavirus test in England found an unstaffed site on Thursday, while others faced long queues and were turned away as the system struggles to cope with soaring demand. About 50 cars were parked at the Doxford Park testing site in Sunderland, just hours after it was announced the city would be subject to local Covid-19 restrictions in a bid tackle rising infection rates in parts of the North East.
