A woman, from Wigton, who was arrested in connection with the investigation, will face no further action.

The decision was made by the Crown Prosecution Service following a police investigation.

Police said North Cumbria University Hospitals Trust worked closely with officers throughout the investigation, which started in January 2017.

A hospital in Peebles has been closed to admissions, due to a number of patients experiencing gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms.

NHS Borders says the measure at Hay Lodge Hospital is a precaution, and that routine visits are strongly discouraged.

Relatives and carers are asked to carefully consider their visits, and the general advice is to stay away from any hospital ward if you or anyone in your family has experienced symptoms of diarrhoea and/or vomiting in the past 48 hours.
