A trainee police officer doctored a Covid-19 test using a red pen in a bid to get time off work. Ahmed Anwari drew an extra line on his test to make it look like a positive result.
He hoped the fake result would allow him to isolate at home in line with the rules at the time. However, suspicions were raised as a result of the unconvincing job he’d done, Lancashire Live reports.
The Lancashire officer was asked to complete another test on a Microsoft Teams video call but again failed to convince that the result was positive.
