Heathrow airport begins screening for Ebola as crisis widens

Passengers arriving at Heathrow airport from Ebola-affected countries have been screened by health officials.

The government said "a few passengers" had their temperatures checked and filled in a health questionnaire at Terminal 1 on Tuesday.

Screening will be extended to Heathrow's other terminals by the end of the week, and Gatwick airport and Eurostar next week.
