Several European countries have banned flights to and from the United Kingdom and others were considering such action, all in hopes of blocking a new strain of coronavirus sweeping across southern England from establishing a strong foothold on the continent.

Travellers on Sunday raced to beat the Sunday deadline before the new rules were imposed.
