British tourists in Spain will be forced to quarantine for two weeks when they return home after a major outbreak in the country.
The UK government is set to announce the new rules which will apply to all holidaymakers – unless they are back in Britain by midnight tonight.
Ministers are expected to remove Spain from the Government’s list of safe countries to travel to after a spike of cases in the country.
A formal announcement is expected to be made by the Department for Transport on Saturday.
It will mean all travellers flying in from Spain from Sunday 26 will be forced to spend a fortnight in isolation to stop the spread of the virus, the Sunday Times reports.
