The UK is committing £75m to help Britons stranded abroad by chartering rescue flights when there are no other routes available.

Speaking at the daily Downing Street briefing on the coronavirus, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said the new plan will assist tens of thousands of travellers.

Up to a million Britons are thought to be stranded as airlines and borders across the world shut down in a bid to stem the COVID-19 outbreak.
