Dominic Raab warns air bridges to UK may hit legal turbulence

BRITAIN risks ‘legal challenges’ if it forms air travel corridors with some countries but excludes others, foreign secretary Dominic Raab (pictured) has said.

There have been calls for ‘air bridges’ with destinations where the risk of coronavirus is low to allow travellers to avoid the UK’s 14-day quarantine rule.

Tory MP Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown said he was ‘confident’ travel corridors would be in place by the end of June.

Chicken plant closes after 58 workers test positive

A CHICKEN processing plant has been closed after 58 cases of coronavirus were confirmed among its 560 staff.

Tests were yesterday being arranged for workers at the 2 Sisters factory in Llangefni, Anglesey.

Dr Christopher Johnson, consultant in health protection for Public Health Wales, said that staff ‘have been notified that they are coronavirus contacts, and we are asking them to self-isolate for 14 days’.

The 2 Sisters Food Group announced it was ‘doing the right thing’ and would cease work on site for 14 days with immediate affect.

Earlier this week, unions said they were aware of 13 cases at the site, with 110 people self-isolating as a precaution.

2 Sisters is one of the largest food producers in the UK, with brands including Fox’s Biscuits and Holland’s Pies. Its factories produce about a third of all poultry products eaten in the UK, supplying customers including KFC and Marks & Spencer.
