A third of workers at coronavirus-hit Bakkavor in Newark live in Lincolnshire

Health bosses estimate that a third of workers at a Newark factory, which is dealing with a coronavirus outbreak, actually live in Lincolnshire.

Bakkavor confirmed an outbreak last week at its dessert factory in Newark, and is currently testing all 1,600 employees as well as agency staff.
