Eyewitnesses said men in white protective suits were seen close to the busy seafront at Llandudno before a convoy of police cars and an ambulance headed along the A55 dual carriageway bound for a Liverpool hospital on Friday.

Dr Deborah Turbitt, Ebola National Incident Director at Public Health England said:

“Between last August and early June, 240 individuals with relevant symptoms and a travel history were tested for Ebola in Britain. The risk of Ebola to the general public in the UK remains very low.

“Our systems have demonstrated that the UK is able to manage a case of Ebola if identified.”
