Scientists at the University of Leicester say they have made a breakthrough in treating the hospital superbug C Diff.
They have identified bacteria-busting viruses which destroy strains of the superbug. Researchers now hope to produce virus-loaded capsules for patients exposed to C Diff.
Dr Martha Clokie from the university explains that the research is not quite ready yet, but progress is being made.
