Holidays cancelled: Portugal added to travel ‘amber list’ by UK

North of England Correspondent

As the removal of Portugal from the green travel list leaves many scrambling to change holiday plans, case rates have increased in every region of England.

The rise has been driven by the Delta variant, which originated in India.

The UK Health Security Agency has warned it may lead to an increased risk of hospitalisation.

We report from the North West, the region of England with the steepest increase, where case rates are at the highest level in three months.
