Home Office Minister Norman Baker said Britain should consider introducing an Ebola screening programme for visitors arriving at UK airports as four major hospitals were put on standby in case the virus reaches the country.

Mr Baker said the case for increased screening at UK airports should be examined in light of the 'very concerning' development in Madrid where a nurse has become the first person to contract the Ebola virus outside Africa.

Chief medical officer, Dame Sally Davies, issued a 'high alert' to all NHS staff, warning they be vigilant.

She urged all health professionals to take a full travel history from any patient who comes to see them complaining or showing signs of a fever.
