Ebola: UK cases 'likely' and airport screening increased
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has announced that UK Ebola cases are "likely" but the public health risk "remains low" in a statement to the House of Commons on Monday.
Mr Hunt said Ebola screening will begin at London's Heathrow Airport on Tuesday.
Passengers from at-risk countries will have their temperature taken, complete a risk questionnaire and have contact details recorded.
Screening at Gatwick and Eurostar terminals will start in the coming week.
