    Matt Hancock told MPs that the aim of community testing for the South African variant was to “stop its spread altogether”.

    “As with the variant first identified here in the UK there is currently no evidence to suggest it is any more severe but we have to come down on it hard,” said Hancock.

    The testing is currently targeting around 80,000 people in eight postcode areas.
