The family and friends of a British nurse who contracted Ebola last Christmas will have to be tested for the deadly virus after she fell gravely ill for the second time today.

Pauline Cafferkey, 39, is in a ‘serious condition’ at the Royal Free Hospital in London after the RAF flew her down from Glasgow this morning.

Her second bout of Ebola came ten days after she received a Pride of Britain award from Lenny Henry and Carol Vorderman and met Samantha Cameron in Downing Street the following day.

Miss Cafferkey is now back in the isolation unit where she spent a month and became critically ill after being diagnosed with Ebola last December.
