Forced quarantine is expected to be introduced by the government for those arriving at airports to shield against new variants of Covid-19, ITV News understands.
Plans are still to be finalised, according ITV News UK Editor Paul Brand, with a meeting of ministers on Tuesday set to decide finer details.
Disagreements remain over who the quarantine would apply to – whether it would affect anyone arriving at the border or only those from high-risk countries.
Under the plans, incomers would be required to stay in a hotel for ten days without leaving and at their own expense.
