George Eliot Hospital visiting suspended after diarrhoea outbreak

Visiting has been suspended for the rest of the week at a Warwickshire hospital following an outbreak of sickness and diarrhoea.

Four wards at the George Eliot Hospital in Nuneaton have been affected.

An NHS spokesperson said anyone suffering from the symptoms was being urged to "avoid the hospital unless they need emergency medical attention".

Visits on compassionate grounds will still be permitted and the situation will be reviewed on Friday.
