New travel restrictions have been imposed on six countries and territories, including France and the Netherlands. 

Scots travelling from France after 4am on Saturday will have to quarantine for 14 days, an announcement clarified last night. 

The Netherlands, Monaco, Malta, Turks & Caicos and Aruba have also been added to the quarantine list.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon confirmed the change last night and wrote: "Due to increased #COVID concern, @scotgov intends to remove the countries below from the quarantine ‘exempt’ list.

"As of 4am Saturday, you will need to quarantine for 14 days if you arrive in Scotland from these countries."

The changes were also confirmed by the UK Government and other devolved governments. 

With Spain already on the quarantine list, it now means that holidaymakers returning to the UK from the two most popular overseas destinations must now isolate for 14 days.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) is now advising against all but essential travel to France.
