LONDON: European countries including the Netherlands, Austria and Italy said on Sunday that they would halt flights from the U.K., hours after Britain's government-imposed tough new Coronavirus restrictions on large areas of southern England to curb what officials described as a fast-moving new strain of the virus.
Eurostar trains between London, Brussels and Amsterdam are being canceled from Monday, after the Belgian government announced that borders with the UK will close at midnight Sunday. The high-speed train operator said on Sunday that trains continue to operate on the London to Paris route. The Belgian government has said it will review the position in 24 hours. Eurostar said they're awaiting further details from relevant governments on how travel restrictions will be enforced. (Agencies)
