    People should holiday at home this year and not travel abroad unless absolutely necessary, Environment Secretary George Eustice has said.

    He added that people must be aware of the ‘risks’ in travelling outside of the UK at present, demonstrated by holiday hotspot Portugal being removed from the government’s green list last week.

    ‘I will be staying at home. I have no intention of travelling or going on a holiday abroad this summer,’ he said.

    Portugal is a southern European country on the Iberian Peninsula, bordering Spain. Its location on the Atlantic Ocean has influenced many aspects of its culture: salt cod and grilled sardines are national dishes, the Algarve’s beaches are a major destination and much of the nation’s architecture dates to the 1500s–1800s, when Portugal had a powerful maritime empire.
