A coronavirus testing centre in Inverness has closed after some of its workforce contracted Covid-19.

Some workers at the site at Highland Council headquarters are self-isolating following the outbreak.

It is understood six of the workforce tested positive for Covid-19.

Mitie operates the facility for the UK government.

"Following a small number of employees testing positive for Covid-19, the decision was made to close the test centre in line with health and safety procedures," said a Mitie spokeswoman.

The site has been deep cleaned.

There are other testing facilities in the city.
