France is to close its borders to all countries outside the European Union from Sunday, according to prime minister Jean Castex.

All people looking to enter from the EU will need a negative PCR test, except for commuters.

UK transport secretary Grant Shapps later clarified the ban would not apply to hauliers, adding “trade will continue to flow smoothly”.

Mr Castex said all large shopping centres will close and travel to the nation’s overseas territories will be restricted as well.
