The government is expected to announce further restrictions on international travel later today, the BBC has reported.
It comes after Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove told BBC Breakfast earlier: “We are looking at further options to restrict international travel.”
He said he had spoken to the first ministers of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to ensure the nations have a “co-ordinated approach” on the issue.
Gove says there are some “vital” reasons for international travel, including for food and fuel deliveries.
“But we are looking very hard to see how we can make sure that our ports and airports are as safe as possible.”
