Ebola risk in UK remains low, says Jeremy Hunt

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said the Ebola "risk in the UK remains low but we have to prepare for the situation getting worse".

Call handlers on the NHS non-emergency 111 phone line will try to identify possible Ebola sufferers, in the latest move announced by the health secretary.

Mr Hunt said anyone phoning with possible symptoms would be asked about their travel history and referred to local emergency services if necessary.
