Grant Shapps has said he wants returning international travellers to be able to use lateral flow tests instead of costly PCR tests by the half-term holiday. Speaking to Sky News, the Transport Secretary said ministers "anticipate" the change coming into force before the October break which will make family trips abroad "much easier, much less expensive as well".
