Five more countries have been added to England's list of countries exempt from coronavirus travel restrictions.
The government has announced that from Tuesday, people returning to England from Latvia, Estonia, Slovenia, Slovakia and St Vincent and the Grenadines will not have to self-isolate for two weeks.
The countries are all also been added to Scotland's list as of Tuesday.
More than 70 countries were included in the government's initial list of travel corridors when it was announced earlier this month.
Countries that were not included on the initial list include Sweden, Brazil, Mexico, the US, Iran, India and Pakistan.
Some countries, such as Portugal, have since been in talks with the British government to try and establish corridors.
It comes after the news this week that the UK will not be featured on Ireland's list of quarantine-free countries.
The Department for Transport has said these destinations have been approved as they pose "a reduced risk to the public health of UK citizens", but the list will be kept "under constant review".
The full list for England is as follows:
Antigua and Barbuda
Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba
St Kitts and Nevis
St Pierre and Miquelon
St Vincent and the Grenadines
Trinidad and Tobago
