Spain reopens for holidays: British tourists can now visit country with NO quarantine but must declare if they have been into contact with anyone infected - as minister boasts coronavirus rates are 'among the lowest in the world'

Spain today appealed for British tourists to visit saying their holidays will not be 'radically' affected by temperature checks and health forms. And he insisted that the decision not to impose any quarantine, even though the UK is forcing incomers from the country to isolate, was based on confidence that the disease is 'under control'. The first Britons started arriving in Spain yesterday after Madrid lifted its ban on foreign tourists and opened its beaches in glorious 100 degree-plus heat. Travel firms have slashed the price of a one-week holiday to £300 after Downing Street signalled 'travel corridors' could be introduced to 10 countries from July 4, with no 14-day quarantine on return to the UK. He added: 'From the point of view of Spain we have always through that we would open our border with the UK at the same time as we did with the rest of European member states....   'There was no health reason for us to impose that quarantine on Brits coming in.'
