Ebola patient Pauline Cafferkey 'not a risk to the public'

Procedures for screening health workers returning to the UK after treating Ebola patients will be reviewed after an infected nurse flew from London to Glasgow despite raising concerns.

Pauline Cafferkey told officials at Heathrow she felt unwell but was allowed to continue her journey. She was diagnosed in hospital the next day.

Chief Medical Officer Dame Sally Davies said that Ms Cafferkey's temperature was "within the range for flying and that she was well" so "would not have been a risk to the public".
