According to reports, 83 British nationals and 27 European nationals have returned from the locked-down city, which is at the centre of the deadly outbreak.

The jumbo jet was met by a queue of coaches waiting to transport them to Arrowe Park Hospital in Wirral, Merseyside, where they will be placed in quarantine for two weeks, staying in accommodation meant for NHS staff.

They will be monitored around the clock and treated if they show any symptoms of the illness that is sweeping across the plant.

It has been reported that passengers had to sign a waiver to agree to be placed in quarantine before they were allowed to board the plane.

An onlooker at RAF Brize Norton said: "There's not much happening at the moment - but there are lots of staff walking around in combats and high vis vests.

"The coaches and ambulances arrived earlier this morning so they're just waiting for the passengers now, everyone is all on hands on deck at the moment."
