Coronavirus LIVE: France quarantine rules begin today as UK cities could face more local lockdowns

BRITS returning from France must self-isolate for 14 days from today.

This follows a rise in cases in the country - with anyone returning to the UK from 4am this morning must now quarantine.

Those heading across the Channel should only do so if essential, but they could face their own period in isolation in France after hints from their government.

People returning from Malta and the Netherlands must also do the same and remain indoors for two weeks.

Meanwhile, eight UK towns and cities have been added to the government's "watchlist" meaning they could enter into a local lockdown.

In Newark and Sherwood there are 26.3 Covid cases per 100,000 population - compared to 34 cases per 100,000 in Manchester and 56.3 per 100,000 in Leicester.

The latest data from the Department of Health shows a continued rise in cases in Oldham and Pendle while numbers remain high in Blackburn with Darwen.

Meanwhile deaths hit 41,347 after 18 more coronavirus fatalities.
