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

She was admitted to hospital early yesterday morning after feeling feverish and was placed into isolation in the Brownlee Unit for Infectious Diseases at the city’s Gartnavel Hospital at 7.50am.

She was transferred from Glasgow Airport on a military-style plane in a quarantine tent surrounded by a group of health workers in full protection suits, bound for the Royal Free Hospital in north London.

A statement on the hospital’s website said: ‘The Royal Free London can confirm that it is expecting to receive a patient who has tested positive for Ebola.

‘The patient will be treated in the high level isolation unit (HLIU).’ We hope she get well soon. #StopEbola
