Ebola patient transferred to London's Royal Free Hospital

Woman who became first to be diagnosed with Ebola in UK after working in Sierra Leone flown from Glasgow Airport on military-style plane in quarantine tent

An NHS worker who has been diagnosed with Ebola after returning to Glasgow from Sierra Leone has been moved to specialist facilities in London.

The woman, who had been working in Sierra Leone with Save the Children, had been in isolation in hospital in Glasgow since Monday morning and is in a stable condition.

It comes as another patient undergoes tests for possible Ebola symptoms at the Royal Cornwall Hospital, near Truro, after being admitted on Monday evening having returned from a "high-risk" area.

The confirmed Ebola patient flew back to the UK via Casablanca and London Heathrow, arriving at Glasgow Airport at around 11.30pm on Sunday on a British Airways flight.
