This drone footage captures a huge line of people snaking around a surgery and onto the road as they wait to receive their Covid jab.

James Millar, 35, grabbed the footage when he was on his way home from work and he saw the line flowing out into the road.

The queue was made up of those called up to go and receive their Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at Abington Park Surgery in Northampton. 

The video production company owner said: "The amount of people queuing all day until 8pm at night was pretty disruptive to the local area, especially traffic-wise.

"There was cars queuing up and down the streets either side of the surgery pretty much all day with it becoming impossible for local residents to park their own cars outside their own houses.

"Social distancing was up and down once some of the people got chatting to one another they definitely relaxed."

James estimates there were about 35 people queuing for their jabs at the time, but it fluctuated at different times of the day.

It was the first day the vaccine had started to be rolled out in the local area.

The footage was taken at about 4pm on December 30 2020.
