One of the region's hospitals has had to close a ward following an outbreak of Norovirus.

Eight patients at the West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds have shown symptoms.

Staff are urging visitors who've experienced diarrhoea or vomiting to stay away from the hospital for at least 72 hours after they've recovered, even if they feel better.
