Dutch government bans air travel from UK after discovering virus variant

The Dutch government has banned air travel from the UK due to fears over a new strain of the coronavirus.
The move comes after health authorities in the Netherlands confirmed at least one case of the same strain that has prompted parts of the UK to return to lockdown rules.
The Dutch health ministry said the case there had been identified at the beginning of December and is being investigated.
Meanwhile, it said that “any introduction of this virus strain from the United Kingdom should be limited as much as possible by limiting or controlling passenger movements from the United Kingdom as much as possible”.
