The Daily Mail’s front page says “Summer Holidays Plunged into Chaos” as no new countries placed on the travel green list. The paper says that Gibraltar is “the only realistic holiday destination which Britons can visit quarantine-free” due to strict entry requirements in other locations.
“No 10 tightens borders and travel rules as variants spark new alarm” is The Guardian splash. The paper adds that the Delta variant – first identified in India – may be more likely to “cause serious illness and was circulating more rapidly in schools”.
