Yep, in a city where traffic levels have already risen sharply a drive-through test centre is causing tailbacks due to insufficient space. Applause all round.

Many people are finding they cannot get tested after waiting for long periods of time.

On a wider level traffic is again extremely heavy across most of south east London today. Numbers of people driving nationwide is seeing a sharp uptick – and yet only 60 per cent are back to regular work.
