Four wards have reopened at a Derbyshire hospital hit by the winter vomiting bug norovirus.

The trust at Chesterfield Royal Hospital took the decision to reopen adult in-patient wards after a fall in the number of new cases being reported.

But it said some restrictions would remain in place for visitors.

A trust spokesman said it had been a very difficult period for the hospital, with many staff also affected by the norovirus outbreak.

The hospital has now restricted visitor numbers to two adults for each patient, with a one hour maximu time limit.
