LONDON (Reuters) - The British government said on Thursday it was removing Italy from its safe travel list, meaning that anyone arriving in the United Kingdom from Italy will have to self-isolate for 14 days.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said on Twitter that the measure would take effect at 4 a.m. (0300 GMT) on Sunday.

Crete, on the other hand, was added to the safe travel list, meaning arrivals from there will no longer have to self-isolate.
