A leading Kent hospital went into 'lockdown' today - the latest casualty of the rapid spread of norovirus. The Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital at Margate has closed four wards to new admissions and quarantined exisiting patients.
A deep-clean of the hospital is now underway. The QEQM and two other east Kent Hospitals - the William Harvey and the Kent & Canterbury - are urging visitors, especially children, to stay away unless absolutely necessary.
In Sussex, 15 wards have been closed since last month at the Royal Sussex in Brighton and the Princess Royal at Haywards Heath - all but one has now re-opened.
