A British man being held at HMP Bullingdon is being tested for coronavirus as he became ill after being extradited from Thailand.

Within days of Mark Rumble arriving to the UK he collapsed in his cell and on Tuesday two prisoners were being tested for coronavirus at the Oxfordshire prison.

Rumble was flown back to the UK on 27 January and has been accused of conspiracy to supply class A drugs.

The prison is on lockdown and prisoners are being kept in isolation in their cells and are being fed food delivered to the cell door.

The prison can hold 1,114 prisoners and Public Health England are at the HMP Bullingdon helping prison staff to manage the situation.
