A man in the British Isles has been arrested for failing to self isolate.

Police confirmed an unnamed British man, 26, was arrested after failing to go into quarantine after arriving in the Isle of Man last night.

Police have been instructed to arrest anyone who arrives on the island who fails to isolate for a 14-day period, even if they show no symptoms.

He is the first Briton to be arrested for breaching strict quarantine rules which have been imposed in an effort to stop the spread of the killer virus. He is now facing a fine of up to £10,000 and could be jailed for three months.
