The former leader of the Ukip party Nigel Farage has been reported to the police by Liberal Democrat acting leader Sir Ed Davey. Farage had posted a video on social media on Saturday showing him outside. Sir Ed Davey argued that from it is known through Farage's "social media posts that he was in America on 20 June, and he was pictured at a Trump rally that evening. Given the current requirements for visitors returning to the UK to isolate for 14 full days on their return, Nigel Farage appears to be in violation of the quarantine".
