Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are off limits for the English under the new lockdown rules which urge people not to travel within the United Kingdom.
It comes after Wales banned visitors from England last month and Nicola Sturgeon today told Scots not to travel south unless for ‘essential purposes.’
Boris Johnson last night imposed a second lockdown in England which comes into force on Thursday and ‘discourages’ travel within the UK, unless for work or education.
Under the Prime Minister’s new rules, all non-essential businesses will close however schools and universities will remain open.
Nicola Sturgeon on Saturday urged Scots not to travel into England due to the recent surge in coronavirus cases.
She has not specifically banned English visitors, like Mr Drakeford did in Wales, but she has previously suggested she would consider banning visitors from certain ‘high risk’ English counties.
