Britons will be able to travel between UK borders.

Holidaymakers from England and Wales will be able to travel to Scotland as of tomorrow (Monday, 26 April).

It will be a welcome change for many, who will be able to travel to see family.

Tourists will also be able to travel across the border to Scotland.

The Scottish Government asks travellers to take a lateral flow test three days before travelling there.

It also asks travellers to take a test on the day of departure if heading to Scotland’s islands.

Meeting indoors is still similarly restricted.
