Spain to ban all entries from UK except for Spanish nationals and residents

Spain will ban all travellers from Britain except Spanish nationals and residents from entering the country from Tuesday amid concerns over a rapidly spreading new strain of the coronavirus, the Spanish government said on Monday.

Controls at the border with Gibraltar, where at least one case of the new COVID-19 variant has already been detected, will be stepped up, the government added in a statement. It said the entry ban for non-residents had been coordinated with neighbouring Portugal, which announced its decision late on Sunday.
