Official figures show where Covid-19 has scattered most of its pain and anguish across Northamptonshire.

They reveal 938 deaths among county residents linked directly to the virus in 9½ months from when it began in March last year until the end of December.

The Office for National Statistics divides the county into 89 areas of around 8,000 people each and assigns each victim to a locality according to their postcode.

Not surprisingly, Northampton has fared worst among the boroughs and districts with more than a third of the deaths, 339, coming from the town.

Kingsley Park and Racecourse, Cliftonville and Rushmere and Lodge Farm have been the areas hardest hit.

But rural areas have not been spared.

East Northamptonshire has seen 141 deaths, including 24 in villages around Ringstead, Woodford and Stanwick.
