The Royal Cornwall Hospital is still on black alert four days after declaring the status.

It means patients are being told not to come to casualty unless it's a genuine emergency.

The alert began on Thursday after a spike in admission. 125 ambulances brought patients to the Royal Cornwall Hospital - 30 more than normal.

It's the sixth time this year the Hospital has declared a black alert.
