Merthyr Tydfil has become the first area in Wales to begin mass coronavirus testing for people who do not have symptoms.

It follows a similar scheme in Wales and everyone living or working in the area can now get a free test.

The tests will be done at Merthyr Tydfil Rhydycar and other sites in the town will open shortly.

Lateral flow tests will be used and these can give a result in around 20-30 minutes.

Merthyr did temporarily have the highest infection rate in Wales but this has dropped considerably during the firebreak lockdown that has now ended in Wales.
