#Johnson wants unrestricted travel to #France and #Spain as soon as possible

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson (pictured) said on Tuesday (16 June) he wanted to see unrestricted travel to Spain and France “as soon as we can”, but defended his government’s quarantine policy on arriving visitors, write Alistair Smout and Estelle Shirbon.

“We don’t want to re-import the disease just at the moment when we’ve really got it under control in this country,” Johnson said. “But we’re certainly looking at air bridges and ways to ensure that people can safely go on holiday, eventually.”

Earlier, Spain said it was considering imposing its own quarantine on UK travellers when it reopens its borders next week, in response to Britain’s move.
