People arriving in England will need a Covid-19 test from Friday

The government says the regulation has been imposed in the face of “worrying new strains” of COVID.

People travelling to England from abroad will have to show they have tested negative for coronavirus before being allowed to enter the country from Friday.

The COVID-19 test will need to be taken up to 72 hours before departure – and those who fail to comply will face an immediate £500 fine.

Inbound passengers on boats, planes and trains are covered by the regulation, which also applies to UK nationals.
