PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A medical professional is stuck in Birmingham with her four-year-old daughter after claiming she was wrongly turned away from a flight back home. Surinder Kaur had only travelled to the UK for a relative's funeral - a trip that is allowed under coronavirus laws. She said she had all the right documents for her and her daughter to fly back to Gibraltar, where they then planned to cross the border into Spain, where they have lived for three years in Andalusia. But the 40-year-old claimed staff at Gatwick Airport didn't understand the rules when they went to catch their easyJet flight. She told The Mirror : "I showed my residency documents. There were two men there, they didn't let me get as far as the boarding desk. "They said, 'This is not your residency document'. I checked everything (with a lawyer) before flying.

As far as they were concerned they knew more than me. It was one of the most stressful experiences I have ever had. I’m still in limbo now, trying to figure out what to do. "It was just awful. They do not know what they are doing." Surinder said she tried to get her lawyer to explain the rules, and said she also showed airport staff the rules on the UK Government's website in a bid to try and make the flight.

. Surinder said she was "really anxious" about booking another flight despite needing to return home. "It all comes down to who got out of bed on the right side. It’s just a gamble, whether you can board or not," she added. "It just feels like people are on a power trip in the UK and trying to exercise powers that aren’t in line with what is on the UK Government's website." Surinder is not the only one who claims they have faced problems at airports amid confusion on Covid-19 travel plans. A dad said his two teenage sons had a "reasonable excuse" to travel but were left stranded at Gatwick after they were barred from flying. Joe said it was "essential" his sons travelled between parents - from their mum's home in Newquay, Cornwall - to stay at his home in Alpujarras - as he had not seen them for nine months. What are the rules on travel? A £5,000 fine is currently in place for anyone who tries to travel abroad for a holiday. But there are exemptions to foreign travel. The UK Government's website says in England, you must have a permitted reason to travel abroad and complete a declaration form. Permitted reasons include travelling for business or work purposes, where it is not reasonably possible to complete that work within the UK, for education, to attend funerals and weddings and for medical reasons. It also states children and dependents have a "reasonable excuse for travel" under certain childcare arrangements. Last week, Spain lifted its outright travel ban on people flying in from Britain for all but Spanish citizens and those with proof of residency in Spain.
