A British healthcare worker who contracted the Ebola virus in Sierra Leone has been repatriated to the UK.
The man was brought back in a specially-equipped military plane and taken to the isolation unit of a London hospital.
The authorities have stressed that protective measures will be strictly maintained to minimise the risk of transmission to staff treating the patient.
It is the first confirmed case of a Briton becoming infected during the current outbreak in West Africa.
Ebola, which can be caught from contact with bodily fluids, kills more than 50 percent of those infected.
In the current outbreak, described by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as the worst in decades, more than 1,427 people have died.
