Children can once again visit Sutton Park after parents were advised not to take them due to an E.coli outbreak.

Officials advised parents not to bring children under 10-years-old to the park last month until the infection had been cleared.

The Health Protection Agency has been working with Birmingham City Council to reduce the spread of the infection which has been linked to the faeces of animals living in the park.
