The French President was said to have spoken to the Prime Minister on Friday morning informing him that if he did not introduce more strident measures on the public he would be forced to close the border, according to the French newspaper Libération.

It reported that Mr Macron gave Mr Johnson an ultimatum where he threatened an entry ban on any traveler from the UK if there were no new measures.
