A ward has been closed at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro because of an outbreak of Norovirus.

The hospital said it was "urging people to choose appropriate services" and "make use of pharmacies and minor injury units".

A spokeswoman asked families not to visit if they had been unwell and to call the ward before visiting patients.

The Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust declared a "black alert" in February due to pressure on its services.
