Second lockdown holiday ban will ‘crucify the travel industry’
‘Another serious blow to the already beleaguered aviation, travel and tourism industries’ – Tory MP Henry Smith

Travel firms, airlines and MPs have responded furiously to the UK government’s sudden ban on holidays from 5 November to 2 December, with a leading figure warning it will “crucify the travel industry”.

As part of the second lockdown, all domestic and international travel has been banned “unless for work, education or other legally permitted exemptions”.

The statement from No 10 said: “There is no exemption for staying away from home on holiday. This means people cannot travel internationally or within the UK.

“Overnight stays away from primary residences will not be allowed, except for specific exceptions including for work.”

Many travel business leaders are furious that they were neither consulted nor pre-warned about a ruling that will cost them tens of millions of pounds.

The prosecutor's office said it found no evidence of the man's involvement, suggesting the gunman could still be at large.

The shooting happened when the priest was closing his church on Saturday. He was seriously injured.

Officials have opened an investigation for attempted murder. Reports have suggested a possible personal motive.

Doubts over 'rapid turnaround' Covid tests pledged by Johnson
PM promised public could get results in ‘10 to 15 minutes’ but tests are designed for lab staff

The “rapid turnaround” coronavirus tests the prime minister announced on Saturday are not approved for the public to interpret themselves without an expert’s help and so will not provide results in the promised 15 minutes, the Guardian has learned.

Boris Johnson’s briefing about this week’s national lockdown in England included the promise of a mass rollout of “tests that you can use yourself to tell whether or not you are infectious and get the result within 10 to 15 minutes”, which would be made available at universities and across whole cities.
