Cyprus and Lithuania are the latest destinations to be removed from the UK's travel corridors list.

This means that any Brits returning from these countries after 4am on Sunday (November 1) will be required to self-isolate for 14 days.

The decision comes following concerns over rising numbers of coronavirus cases in these destinations.

Secretary of State for Transport Grant Shapps took to Twitter to announce the latest changes.

He wrote: "TRAVEL CORRIDOR UPDATE: We are REMOVING CYPRUS and LITHUANIA from the #TravelCorridor list. From 4am Sunday 1st November, if you arrive into the UK from these destinations you will need to self-isolate."

Although travel corridors are not the same thing as the Foreign Office travel advice, when countries have been added or removed to the travel corridors list, the FCDO advice changes accordingly.

That means if you have a holiday booked to Cyprus or Lithuania the Foreign Officehas changed its advice to be against non-essential travel.

Germany maintains its quarantine exemption despite recording 107 cases per 100,000 people in the past week.

No countries have been added to the list of travel corridors this week.
