Coronavirus UK news LIVE: Easyjet plan to continue flights to France and lockdown eases in England

HOLIDAYMAKERS returning from France will have to quarantine, the government has announced.

It means 500,000 tourists have until 4am on Saturday to return to the UK to avoid two-week quarantine, the PM said.

France was taken off the "safe" list last night following crunch talks.

The PM said yesterday while on a trip to Northern Ireland: “We have got to be absolutely ruthless about this, even with our closest and dearest friends and partners. I think everybody understands that.

“We can’t be remotely complacent about our own situation. Everybody understands that in a pandemic you don’t allow our population to be reinfected or the disease to come back in.”

Malta and The Netherlands were also added to the list.

Budget airline Easyjet has said it will continue to fly to the countries that have recently been added to the UK's quarantine list.

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