Travellers returning to England from the Balearic Islands from next week will have to quarantine at home unless they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said Ibiza, Majorca and Minorca had been added to the amber list for travel.

The government also put Cuba, Indonesia, Myanmar and Sierra Leone on the red list, meaning anyone travelling from there would need to quarantine in a hotel.

Bulgaria and Hong Kong have been added to the green list, while Croatia and Taiwan join the green watchlist, which means they are at risk of being moved to amber.

The changes will come into effect from 4:00 am BST on Monday.
