Transport Secretary cannot give fines numbers two months after quarantine came in


Transport Secretary Grant Shapps admitts that, more than two months after quarantine rules were introduced, he cannot say how many fines have been handed out. He was speaking as more British holidaymakers faced a scramble to return from popular destinations. Croatia, Austria and Trinidad & Tobago have been removed from the safe travel list, with restrictions coming into effect from 4am on Saturday. Mr Shapps said people going anywhere this summer should be travelling with their “eyes open” to the prospect of having to self-isolate on return, pointing to his own experience of having been “caught out” while in Spain last month when it was added to the quarantine list.
