The British government has announced a traffic light system that will allow Britons to travel on vacation to France.
The new system will decide in which countries to travel safely, with those classified as green or amber available to vacationers.
The government has said the full list of countries and exemptions will be announced this week – with people able to go on vacation to these destinations as early as next week.
France is expected to fall into the green or amber categories, opening it up to British tourists.

Now the board has changedand the British will be able to visit certain agreed destinations.
