The passengers on the evacuation flight out of China will have access to entertainment including Netflix when they arrive at their hotel.

Kents Hill Park, a conference centre and hotel in Milton Keynes, will be used to house the returnees – and they will remain there in isolation for 14 days.

The aircraft from Wuhan to RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire is carrying more than 200 passengers, including UK Government staff and medics.
