Bug leads to Worcestershire hospital visitor restrictions

Visits to patients at Worcestershire's main hospitals are being limited to those in "exceptional circumstances" after a norovirus outbreak.

Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Trust said there were restrictions at the Alexandra, Worcestershire Royal and Kidderminster hospitals.

It said it would consider requests from relatives who had a particular need to visit a patient.

It urged anyone showing symptoms of vomiting or diarrhoea to stay away.
