Anyone travelling into the UK who flouts new quarantine rules could face a £1,000 on-the-spot fine.

People will need to fill in an online form telling Border Force where they plan to stay during a 14 day period of self-isolation. There will be a £100 fine for those who do not fill in the form.

Public Health England will call new arrivals.

The list of exemptions is short but includes hauliers and medical professionals working to tackle coronavirus. People will be able to travel between Ireland, Britain, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. Seasonal farm workers will be able to travel but must self-isolate on the farms where they work.

The new rules come into force on June 8.

Launching the new measures at today’s daily Downing Street briefing, Home Secretary Priti Patel said: "We will not allow a small minority, a reckless minority, to endanger us all."

She said the government would work with the travel sector, which stands to be affected by the new rules.

The rules will be reviewed every three weeks.
