A West Midlands hospital has closed all wards to visitors as a precaution because of the winter vomiting bug.

Sandwell General Hospital has also shut four of its wards due to norovirus.

City Hospital in Birmingham, which is also part of Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust, shut all wards to visitors on Thursday and has three wards closed.

But people can still visit critical care, paediatrics, maternity and the Birmingham & Midland Eye Centre.
