    Next week, the UK government will relax rules that forced all arriving travellers to quarantine for two weeks.

    Instead, the United Kingdom will introduce a traffic light system, with countries grouped together based on their coronavirus infection rates.

    It is a move that could throw a lifeline to Europe's tourism industry.

    EU diplomats are also considering lifting some pan-European travel bans.
