Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Police kick down door to grab Briton who 'refused hotel quarantine'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Dramatic footage shows the moment police bust down the door of a British man who came back from Bahrain and 'refused to quarantine in a hotel'.

Football coach Mathew Owens, 30, left Bahrain on April 9, having worked for one of the country's premier league clubs. He made two transfers on his return journey - the first to Abu Dhabi, then on to Frankfurt before finally flying back to Manchester.

Mr Owens claims he had phoned the consulate in Bahrain asking if he could travel through Abu Dhabi - which is on the travel 'red list' - and they told him that he would be 'fine' as long as he didn't leave the airport at any point. 

But when he stopped off at Frankfurt International Airport, Mr Owens says he was told he faces a £1,750 bill to quarantine in a hotel in Birmingham - 100 miles from his home in Liverpool.     

After arriving in Manchester, police then insisted they would escort him to a coach that would take him all the way to Birmingham, he said.
