Fury as flights still arriving from Brazil despite 'concerning' new Covid variant

There is fury tonight as flights from Brazil continue to arrive into the UK each day despite a new variant of Covid-19 being discovered in the country.

The Prime Minister admitted he is "concerned" about the new variant as he spoke with MPs on the Liaison Committee, but refused to to say if the UK had plans to close its borders with Brazil.

Questioned by Health Committee chair Jeremy Hunt, Boris Johnson said: “We already have tough measures… to protect this country from new infections coming in from abroad. “We are taking steps to do that in respect of the Brazilian variant.” What is your view?
