Travel news latest: All unvaccinated arrivals to face quarantine under new rules

arrivals – PA

    Major changes to our travel rules are to be announced today, with restrictions eased for double-jabbed Britons but tightened for the unvaccinated.

    All arrivals who have not had two doses of the vaccine at least two weeks prior to entering the UK will have to quarantine for up to 10 days, The Telegraph understands, regardless of where they have been; including countries currently rated as green. As it stands, unvaccinated travellers don't have to self-isolate upon return from the 43 nations on the green list.

    As part of the new shake-up, they will also have to take a Covid test before boarding a flight home, a PCR test on day two after returning and at least a lateral flow test on day eight.

    The exact details of the new travel system remain fluid, with government sources stressing that the package will be finalised only after crunch meetings on Friday morning.

    However, it is expected that the green and amber categories will be dropped, the red list will be significantly reduced, and vaccinated arrivals will no longer have to take a pre-departure PCR test before returning to the UK.

    Scroll down for the latest news as it happens.

    Tube accidents soar as passengers too afraid to hold escalator handrails

    Escalator falls have soared in Tube stations because passengers are too afraid to hold handrails over fears they could catch Covid.

    A London Underground chief has warned falls caused by people not holding handrails “due to a perception they are not clean” is currently one of the biggest safety risks facing the network.

    There were 12 serious injuries on the Tube network between April and June and 23 on buses, which Transport for London (TfL) said was “a total greater than any quarter throughout 2020/21”.

    It is believed that the number of accidents on escalators is also being worsened by the end of lockdown, which has seen the return of large numbers of drunken revellers travelling on nights out.
