A much-heralded shipment of PPE has been found to be ‘useless’ after it failed quality control tests.

The government had announced the delivery of 84,000 tonnes of PPE last month in response to concerns the NHS was running out.

Since then, the shipment has been subject to many delays, with figures showing that only 4,500 of the 400,000 gowns promised have actually made it to hospitals.
