COVID-19: British holidaymakers could be allowed to travel to Europe within weeks

Ministers are reportedly considering a handful of countries people from the UK will be able to travel to initially in the coming weeks.

Reports suggest the "green list" could include about a dozen countries, although some papers say it could be fewer than 10.

Several named Malta, Gibraltar, Portugal and Israel as likely destinations, while the Daily Telegraph said Spain, Greece and France could be added by the end of June.

The green list will specify which countries people can travel to without having to isolate for 14 days on their return and is expected to be released this week.

Boris Johnson has said the approach will be cautious to avoid "an influx of disease".

The prime minister said there would be "some opening up" on 17 May but that things must be done in a way "to make sure that we don't see the virus coming back in" to the UK.
