Coronavirus UK news LIVE: Brits must now quarantine upon France return as A-Level and GCSE grade appeals made free

BRITS returning from France must self-isolate for 14 days from today.

This follows a rise in cases in the country – with anyone returning to the UK from 4am this morning must now quarantine.

Those heading across the Channel should only do so if essential, but they could face their own period in isolation in France after hints from their government.

People returning from Malta and the Netherlands must also do the same and remain indoors for two weeks.

Meanwhile, A-Level and GCSE students have been given a boost in their bids to overturn grades they feel are incorrect.

The algorithm designed to predict the results for those that missed exams due to the coronavirus has come under much scrutiny.

Many have been looking to appeal, only to be facing a fee of up to £150 for an independent review – which they would be refunded if they won.

But Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has revealed that all appeals will be free of charge, whether successful or not, in a bid to avoid students being put off.

The death toll rose by 18 in the UK on Friday, with 41,347 people dying due to the coronavirus in Britain.
