Greece, Spain and Italy, desperate for Brit tourists, are likely to defy her battle cry.

Merkel raged: “In our country if you come from Great Britain you have to go into quarantine.

“That’s not the case in every European country and that’s what I’d like to see.”

MP Conor Burns added: “It would be hugely disappointing if the EU continues to make decisions based on Brexit revenge than scientific fact.”
