People returning from any of the 33 'high-risk' countries where travel to Britain is banned must pay 1,750 pounds as a 10-day quarantine hotel package.

After being taken by a bus to government-contracted hotels, they must spend most of the time in their rooms and have meals delivered to their door.

Reuters Photographers Hannah McKay and Toby Melville capture the travellers's emotions through their lenses.
