Travel industry figures have dismissed the latest moves by the US and UK to reopen travel.

A Number 10 statement said UK prime minister Boris Johnson and president would "work to relaunch UK-US travel as soon as possible".

What are the current rules on US-UK travel?

Meanwhile, travellers from the US to the UK must self-isolate for 10 days on arrival as the country is on the "amber list".

Under a presidential decree introduced last March, non-US citizens who have been in the UK in the last 14 days cannot enter the country unless a specific exemption applies.
