Another fire, this time Minies area, not too far from the airport.

Grant Shapps admits UK's varied quarantine rules are 'a bit confusing'

The transport secretary has admitted that having varying quarantine advice for separate UK nations is "confusing" for holidaymakers, but insisted the rules are clear enough to be understood.

Travellers across the UK have been calling for clarity after Wales and Scotland imposed quarantines on returnees from Portugal, but England and Northern Ireland did not.

"It is, I'm afraid, a bit confusing though I suspect people will know which country they live in and be able to follow local rules," Grant Shapps told ITV News.

Well, yes, I don't think it's too tricky to understand but you're dealing with tourists, Grant - half of 'em don't know which country their holiday destination is in.

Heard there's a fire in Helmata, think this is separate from the Minies fire.
