A Co Antrim couple due to fly out to Spain yesterday had to cancel their holiday at the 11th hour after the country was removed from the quarantine exemption list at short notice.

Cathy Brown and her husband Craig had arranged a two-week break at a relative's villa after an earlier holiday to Greece in June was cancelled due to the global pandemic.

However, they were forced to cancel their replacement holiday after finding out yesterday morning that their travel insurance was void in light of the new guidance.
