British health workers have transformed a giant IKEA in northwest London into a coronavirus testing centre as the government aims to test 100,000 people a day.

The mammoth task has pushed health workers to be creative with sites as hospitals become overwhelmed with critically sick patients.

More than 33,000 people have tested positive for the virus in the UK and 2921 people have died.
