Pop-up coronavirus testing centres will be placed around Staffordshire, in a push to encourage people to get tested regularly.
Staffordshire County Council said, as restrictions continue to be relaxed, it is urging people to get tested twice a week, even if they don't have symptoms and is hosting outdoor pop-up testing sites, to help make it easier.Copyright: Getty Images
Chasewater Country Park, Cannock Chase Visitor Centre and a local car boot held pop-up testing over the weekend.
This week Tutbury Castle and various supermarkets a will see rapid testing available for the first time.
Director for health and care at the council, Dr Richard Harling, said: "The move to setting up outdoors where people already visit makes it even more convenient - people can get a supervised test whilst they are out doing their shopping or enjoying the fresh air and warmer weather."
Staffordshire Police said stalking offences in the county have more than doubled in a year, rising from 823 in 2019, compared to 2,088 in 2020.
The force puts this increase down to more people coming forward to report crimes, rather than an increase in offending.
"On the whole it means less stalking is going unreported and more victims are being protected," Det Insp Victoria Ison, from the force, said.
"A lot of work has been done to increase general understanding and awareness of this crime, so we believe more victims now recognise the behaviours and are reporting them to the police," she added.
