At least 18 schools across Derby and Derbyshire have been affected by cases of Covid-19 among staff, pupils and parents within days of reopening after lockdown.

This has resulted in hundreds of pupils being sent home from school.

Many parents across the city and county have tried and failed for hours and days - due to a lack of national lab capacity - to have their children tested for Covid-19 in a bid to get them back into school.

Derby City Council, as of noon today, said that seven schools across the city had reported cases of Covid-19. It was asked to name these schools.
