Ministers are set to remove Spain from the Government’s list of safe countries to travel to after the European country saw a rise in Covid-19 cases.
A formal announcement is expected to be made by the Department for Transport this evening, however news sources have reported Spain is to be removed from this green list due to fears of how the virus is being handled there and the numerous outbreaks.
This means those going to and from Spain will have to quarantine for 14 days from tonight.
It comes owns and municipalities all across Spain have had to carry out localized lockdown, turning areas back into the days where the height of the pandemic is rife.
Even foreign PMs including French Prime Minister Jean Castex has told citizens not to go to Spain.
And now tourists will have to quarantine meaning spending all of their holiday indoors.
Some airlines concerned about the outbreaks had already begun cancelling flights.
Rory Boland tweeted to say: ‘Why on earth was this decision not taken 48hrs ago, when it was clear there was a problem with Spain, and before tens of thousands of UK holidaymakers flew out on Friday as the summer hols started?’
