Burton residents have been told they face their "last chance" to get the outbreak of coronavirus cases in the town under control.

A stark warning was issued by one of the town's controlling bodies, Staffordshire County Council, on Tuesday, September 8, that Burton risks being placed back into lockdown.

This comes as stricter rules were put in place in four areas of the town, Anglesey, Shobnall, Horninglow and Eton Park, which have each seen a rise in cases.

If it is not brought under control in these areas, all of Burton risks being put back into a strict lockdown, similar to what has been seen in Leicester.

Businessmen and politicians from across the town have been pleading with residents to play their part in controlling the outbreak in recent days.

Today, a walk-in test centre will be held at St Chad's Community Centre, in Hunter Street, from 2pm to 7pm.

These sessions are free, and open to everyone without Covid-19 symptoms.
