The facility has been set up by the city council who said the aim was to protect healthcare workers as well as patients in hospitals and doctors surgeries, by reducing the risk of infection.

The centre's on the car park off the A449 to the north of the city centre and the authority said only people referred by NHS 111 would be able to use it.

People will be swabbed from their vehicle before returning home to wait for the results.

Earlier this week, it was confirmed a patient with the virus, who had been treated in Wolverhampton, had died.

At a meeting of the city’s full council yesterday, Conservative member Simon Bennett put forward a motion to raise the flag outside the Civic Centre for the duration of the day to officially mark Brexit.

It was given the full backing of the city’s Labour leader.

Mr Bennett said: “Regardless of whether you voted to leave or remain – and it is no secret that there are many in this chamber who voted remain – nobody can be in any doubt that this is a significant moment in our country’s history."

Police were called to the Dog and Partridge in Broad Street, Bilston, in the early hours of 14 July after reports of gunfire and an attack involving a meat cleaver.

A woman in her 30s was taken to hospital and treated for head injuries following the incident.

Wolverhampton Council’s Statutory Licensing Sub-Committee heard this week the fun day was more of an adult-themed pool party, with noise levels exceeding 70 decibels.

We have seen overwhelming evidence of numerous disturbances and it’s our decision that the licence should be revoked and fresh interim steps be imposed.
