Government considering travel restrictions from Britain as EU countries ban UK flights due to Covid-19 strain

The government is considering imposing additional travel restrictions on movement from the United Kingdom for two days.

It comes after a number of European countries imposed bans on flights arriving from the UK.

Health Minister Stephen Donnelly said there will be an announcement later today regarding potential travel restrictions from the UK.

He said the government was looking at flights and ferries coming from Britain into Ireland and that the government was giving the matter serious consideration.

The wave of EU nations banning travel from the UK is likely to continue over the coming hours and days.
