Fears the deadly virus Ebola had spread to Britain's shores after an elderly woman became ill and died shortly after landing at Gatwick Airport have proved to be a false alarm.
Tests revealed the woman, who flew into London from Gambia, did not have the disease, which has now killed more than 650 people in West Africa.
The passenger, thought to be in her 70s, was rushed to East Surrey Hospital but later died.
Dr Brian McCloskey, director of global public health at Public Health England, said: "Yesterday morning a passenger became unwell after disembarking a flight at Gatwick from The Gambia, and sadly died in hospital.
"There was no health risk to other passengers or crew, as the passenger did not have symptoms during the flight.
"It was considered very unlikely to be a case of Ebola but testing was done as a precaution, and was negative.
"PHE can confirm there was no public health risk around the sad death of this individual."
