France is to introduce mandatory quarantine for people arriving from the UK - due to the rise in cases of the Indian coronavirus variant.

France follows Austria, which on Tuesday said it was banning direct flights and tourist visits from Britain and Germany.

British tourists had been due to be allowed to visit France without restrictions from 9 June if they carried a certificate of vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative PCR test.

But government spokesperson Gabriel Attal said at a news conference on Wednesday that France would now "put in place obligatory isolation" for people coming from the UK - but he did not give details of how long the quarantine period should last.
