- The last holidaymakers to race out of France in order to avoid new quarantine measures imposed by the UK arrived on British shores just before the deadline at 04:00 BST. A passenger on one of the last ferries said the government needed to provide more warning so people were not “rushing dangerously” to avoid 14 days of isolation.

It comes as a student whose results had been marked down by three grades told Schools Minister Nick Gibb: "You have ruined my life.”

- Parents are being urged to ensure that their children’s vaccinations are up to date , after the early weeks of lockdown saw a 20% drop in the number of measles, mumps and rubella vaccines.

Russia launches production of new vaccineRussia's health ministry says it has begun production of a new vaccine.In a press release, the ministry said the vaccine would be rolled out at the end of the month.
Many experts fear that Russia may be compromising safety by fast-tracking the vaccine.In Russia, an independent poll has revealed that over a half of medics said were not ready to get vaccinated as they do not trust it.
President Vladimir Putin previously said it had passed all the required checks, adding that his daughter had already been vaccinated.
The vaccine has been named Sputnik V in honour of the world's first satellite. Sputnik is the Russian word for satellite.
British holidaymakes criticise 'unrealistic' quarantine noticeSome of the last UK travellers to make it home before the 04:00 BST deadline when quarantine restrictions were imposed on France, the Netherlands and several other locations have said the short notice risked making them rush "dangerously".
Kim Wells and his family made it into Newhaven from Dieppe in northern France with just eight minutes to spare, telling BBC Radio 4's Today programme that announcing the decision late at night with just 30 hours' notice was "pretty unrealistic".
"I don't really understand why they can't be a little bit more clear with the public about what the tipping point is, when we might perhaps be approaching the need to quarantine."
He said the government should give people 48 or 72 hours' notice so that people who need to return home can do so "without rushing dangerously".
Kate Mooney and her family decided to make the journey back to Cornwall a week early, arriving about 01:00 BST, after contemplating the impact of two weeks' isolation.
"Our immediate response was 'let's just stay and finish our holiday', and then we started to really consider what quarantine meant," she told BBC Breakfast.
"There would be no way we could leave the house... that's when we decided we would come back."
What are the UK travel quarantine rules?Travellers entering the UK from France and the Netherlands will face a 14-day quarantine when they arrive from Saturday.
The UK government's decision follows a surge in cases in the countries affected in recent days.
So what are the quarantine rules?
Travellers from affected countries - including UK nationals - are asked to provide an address where they will self-isolate for 14 days. They can be fined £100 for failing to provide these details.
One in five eligible passengers will be called or texted to check they are following the rules.
People who do not self-isolate can be fined up to £1,000 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and £480 in Scotland. There are fines of up to £5,000 for persistent offenders.
Passengers should drive their own car to their destination if possible. If they don't provide an address, the government will arrange accommodation at the traveller's expense.
Once at their destination, they must not use public transport or taxis during the quarantine period. They must also not go to work, school, or public areas, or have visitors except for essential support.
Nor are they allowed to go out to buy food, or other essentials, if they can rely on others.
People returning from overseas will not be automatically eligible for statutory sick pay during this period, unless they meet the required conditions - for example, displaying coronavirus symptoms.
The full list of countries exempt from quarantine rules has been updated regularly.
The government has published a list of ''lower risk'' countries that can be visited without the need to self-isolate on returning to England.

Can I still go on my holiday?Quarantine measures imposed on France by the UK have now come into force.
The Netherlands, Monaco, Malta, Turks and Caicos, and Aruba have also been removed from the UK government's list of countries exempt from quarantine rules.
But can you still go on holiday to these countries?
If the new rules will affect your ability to work when you return to the UK, it could mean having to cancel your trip.
In cases where only quarantine rules are changed, you are unlikely to be able to get your money back from tour operators, airlines or hotels.
However, if the Foreign Office also advises against travel to a country - as is now the case for France - then a refund for the whole holiday or the opportunity to rearrange it should be granted.
Some people are exempt from the quarantine rules, including Eurotunnel train drivers, road haulage workers and military personnel.
