Halfords is set to offer motorists a free health check-up when they take their cars in for a service.

The retailer said it is considering rolling out the programme over the summer following a test period at its centre in Crawley, Sussex.

During the trial, motorists were given a blood pressure check and advice on healthy living.

Stefan Warhaftig of Halfords said the idea was to turn autocentres into mini health check stations.

"Many of us lead busy lives but we still manage to make sure our car's MoT is done on time but we don't necessarily pause to treat our health in the same way," he said.

Halfords, which also sells bikes and camping equipment, operates almost 800 shops and garages across the UK.
