France to be added to UK quarantine countries

People coming to the UK from France and the Netherlands will be forced to quarantine for 14 days from Saturday.

London said the measure was necessary to keep coronavirus infections down. France warned the UK decision would lead to "reciprocal measures" across the Channel.

The UK government's decision follows a surge in cases in the countries affected in recent days.

With up to half a million UK tourists thought to be in France at present, the deadline is expected to induce a rush to ports and airports, with thousands of tourists desperate to avoid quarantine.
