Guernsey hospital ward flooded

The Le Marchant Ward at Guernsey's Princess Elizabeth Hospital has reopened after it was flooded.

A spokesman for the Health Department said an isolator valve on a hot water main pipe failed causing flooding of the ward and some ancillary areas.

He said no patients or staff were injured during the incident.

The spokesman said patient care had been interrupted, however, no patients were adversely affected as a result and they had started to return to the ward.

He thanked Guernsey Fire and Rescue Service for their assistance and said a full investigation would be carried out to find the cause of the valve failure.
