Screening for the Ebola virus has begun at London Heathrow Airport, despite doubts over the effectiveness of such a programme. Passengers arriving in the UK from high risk countries will be among the first to undergo the process. Screening for Ebola - which has been most prevalent in western Africa - will start at Terminal 1, before being extended to other terminals, Gatwick airport and Eurostar by the end of the week.
