An increased incidence of vomiting and diarrhoea has been reported in Antrim Area Hospital in the last few days, the Northern Health Trust has said.

A restriction on visiting in affected areas has been put in place.

The trust said it had been caused by a virus "currently circulating" in Northern Ireland.

It has asked people visiting patients to avoid doing so if they have vomiting and diarrhoea, cold or flu symptoms.
