Visiting restrictions have been lifted at a hospital unit after an outbreak of sickness and diarrhoea.

The restrictions apply to Hereford County Hospital's Gilwern Unit. The unit which looks after frail and elderly patients has been closed to visitors for a number of days after the sickness outbreak.

Health officials say that even though visitors are now allowed back on the ward, they're asking for anyone with diarrhoea and vomiting not to visit until they're free of the symptoms for 48 hours.

Wye Valley NHS Trust say the restrictions were put in place to protect patients, as part of a zero-tolerance approach to healthcare-associated infections.

Officers are keen to stress that the person in the CCTV is not a suspect, but hasn't been identified and could provide vital information.

No further action will be taken against four people who were arrested in connection with the incident in August of this year.


Due to flooding between Craven Arms and Shrewsbury some train lines are blocked causing disruption on some routes.

The line is closed between Hereford and Shrewsbury and is expected to be until 9.30am this morning.

Tickets are being accepted on London Midland, Cross Country and Virgin Trains.
