Second Isolation Breach For Sark

Another vessel from outside the Common Travel Area has landed in Sark - breaching Bailiwick border rules.

On Saturday the Guernsey Border Agency was notified that a private vessel had landed on the island.

It's understood there were eight travellers on board.

The authorities and Public Health soon made them aware of the self-isolation requirements and escorted the vessel to Guernsey, where all are now self-isolating.

The GBA is currently investigating.

Sark's Medical Officer has reviewed the situation and confirms that 'there are no concerns of a risk to public health as a result of this incident.'

This recent breach is the second reported this month following a French vessel landing on the island several weeks ago. The pair on board were fined £3,000 each.
