European holiday hopes on the line as PM set to talk COVID travel rules with Germany’s Merkel

The prime minister will welcome Angela Merkel to the UK on Friday, with coronavirus travel restrictions expected to be high on the agenda for their talks.

Boris Johnson will host the German chancellor at his country residence of Chequers, Mrs Merkel's final visit before she steps down later this year.

COVID-19 is anticipated to be among the topics up for discussion, particularly in the wake of Mrs Merkel reportedly calling for the European Union to ban all UK travellers from entering the bloc regardless of their vaccination status.
