Travel ban between UK and France gets eased

London, 23rd December: Services between the UK and France return as travel ban gets eased.

According to reports from BBC News, rail, air and sea services between the UK and France resumed this morning after the French government agreed to ease its travel ban over COVID fears.

French citizens, British nationals living in France and hauliers are among those who can now travel to the UK, provided if they have a recent negative coronavirus test.

 

In Kent, soldiers have joined NHS Test and Trace staff to carry out rapid tests on stranded lorry drivers.

Thousands of vehicles have been stuck there since the border shut on Sunday.

The Netherlands and Belgium have also relaxed bans on arrivals from the UK, as long as they have a recent negative result.

But more than 50 other countries, including Italy, India and Pakistan, are continuing to block travellers from the UK.

 

The travel ban was imposed on Sunday after the UK government warned of a new, fast-spreading variant of coronavirus and introduced strict tier four, stay at home, restrictions across large parts of southern and eastern England.
