No escaping from Wales- UK police to enforce travel ban: A police force in England says it will try to stop people from leaving Wales, which has started a 17-day lockdown to slow a surging rate of coronavirus infections.
The Gloucestershire Constabulary will patrol routes from Wales and pull over drivers they believe are making long journeys. Travelers without a good excuse will be asked to turn around. If they don’t comply, officers will inform their Welsh counterparts so they can take action because Gloucestershire police don’t have the authority to fine people traveling from Wales, the department said.

Defeat on protecting family rights of Britons returning from the EU:
While British people who move to live within the EU before December 31st 2020 are protected by the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement, this doesn’t cover family reunification rights if they want to return to the UK. So if British people now living in the EU and married to an EU national want at some point to return to the UK, their EU spouse will be subject to the UK’s strict new immigration rules.
