Current advice states that people should not travel if they have experienced symptoms within seven days of departure and must quarantine on their return from any country that is not part of the approved air bridge list.

Spain was removed from from the list of safe destinations in July and anyone returning from the country to the UK must self isolate for ten days. 

The man, who has not been named, is believed to be from Heywood in Rochdale, which has registered 919 positive coronavirus cases in the last week, a rise of 29 per cent on the week before.
