Birmingham’s drop and collect coronavirus testing service remains suspended after used coronavirus test kits were handed to students in Selly Oak.

It’s believed a number of undergraduates were given used swabs, with some packaging reportedly containing names and addresses.

The mistake was made in Tiverton Road by staff taking part in Birmingham City Council’s drop and collect service on Tuesday, October 13.
