Budget airline Ryanair says it will ground nearly all its flights from next week due to the coronavirus crisis gripping Europe.

The industry has been heavily hit by the outbreak as governments have scrambled to close borders and lockdown citizens.

It comes after Flybe, which was Europe's largest regional airline, collapsed earlier this month as COVID-19 hit the continent.
