Pilgrim Hospital in Boston in Lincolnshire has closed three wards and restricted admission to two because patients and staff have symptoms of norovirus.

The closures are a precaution to prevent further spread of the virus.

The wards will reopen once patients have been discharged and the area has been free from symptoms of the winter vomiting bug for up to 72 hours.

The hospital remains open.
