A Suffolk travel agent has closed his business and is urging his competitors to do the same to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Harry Embleton, who manages Air Manage Suffolk, has closed his books until at least June and is offering customers a refund instead of going ahead with planned getaways in the county.

He hopes to set an example in the industry, despite the significant financial hit he is due to take.
