Breaking: Spain's ministers say UK may remove quarantine from it's tourist islands from today

In a shock turnaround, Britain and Spain may be in agreement to scrap the quarantine rules currently in place for it’s holiday islands in the Balearics and the Canaries.

Spain’s tourism minister Reyes Maroto said on Monday that Britain could lift its quarantine on travelers returning from the Balearic and Canary islands later on in the day.

Miss Maroto took to Spanish television this morning to say her government had sent new epidemiological data to London, which she hoped would prompt the British government to revise its quarantine measures.

The UK have yet to respond to the matter but government ministers have criticized having quarantine measures with one of their most popular tourist destinations which has left the economy crippled with people staying home rather than quarantine.

Currently those travelling in from Spain and from the UK to Spain have to self-isolate for 14 days.

The new rules which could be imposed today only count for the Spanish islands and not mainland Spain.
