Coronavirus: Care home creates 'drive-through' visit

A care home in Devon has copied the concept of drive-through restaurants to reunite loved ones during the coronavirus crisis.

During lockdown regular visits haven't been allowed at Sefton Hall in Dawlish.

But through careful planning - including use of PPE, time-slots and separate stations - families were, for one day, able to see residents from the safety of their cars after eight weeks apart.

Care home staff and visitors shared this footage with the BBC with the permission of residents and families.
