Prime Minister Boris Johnson is to address the nation later on Monday and it is most likely he will discuss the latest travel restrictions.

UK travellers have been hit with travel bans over the weekend following the announcement the country now has a new strain of the virus, which is more contagious.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesperson said that the travel restrictions will not be kept in place any longer than required.

This will come following a COBRA meeting to discuss the latest travel ban that has been imposed on the UK by many countries across the world.

Earlier today a Government spokesperson said, “We are expecting significant disruption in Kent following the announcement by the French Government that, from 23.00 on Sunday 20 December, it will not accept any passengers from the UK for the next 48 hours.

“As a result we are urging everybody – including all hauliers – to avoid travelling to Kent ports until further notice.

“We are working closely with Kent Resilience Forum, Kent Council and Highways England to ensure contingency measures are urgently put in place to manage disruption, and the Prime Minister will chair a COBRA meeting tomorrow to discuss the situation.”
