Coronavirus UK news LIVE – Covid cases rise to HIGHEST in six months as green list holiday deals get snapped up

UK Covid deaths are at their highest since March, with 63 fatalities recorded in the last 24 hours.

The latest figures also recorded the most daily cases in six months, with 48,553 testing positive in the same period.

Despite the jump in cases many have set their sights on holidays abroad especially now Croatia has been added to the green list.

The news is a boost for Brits desperate for a foreign holiday, following the news that the Balearic Islands have been placed back on the amber list.

However, anyone booking holidays should be aware that Croatia is on the green watchlist, meaning it could be added back to the amber list at the last minute if Covid cases increase in the country.

There are plenty of great last minute deals to Croatia to be had though, with holidays from £146pp this summer.
