The UK Government has said that people found taking holidays during the one month lockdown will face a fine of up to £6,400 as domestic and international holiday trave is now banned under the new restrictions.
The penalties for breaching the rules will start at £200 and rise to a maximum of £6,400. Members of the general public should also avoid travelling outside their local areas unless it’s for a valid reason such as work or medical help say the Department of Transport.
Germany and Sweden have now been removed from the UK’s “safe to travel” list as both have seen a rise in coronavirus cases so therefore passengers arriving to the UK from these countries will have to self isolate for two weeks from Saturday. This news follows the strict countrywide lockdown imposed on England from yesterday.
Figures released by the Government on Wednesday show almost 500 Covid-19 deaths were registered in just one day, the first time since May 19 that the daily death toll has exceeded 450.
