Visitors have been banned from Warwick Hospital following an outbreak of the winter vomiting bug, Norovirus.

A statement on the hospital's website said patients should still attend their appointments unless they are directly notified otherwise.

Jane Ives, the hospitals' director of operations, said the outbreak started at the weekend and spread very quickly.

She said: "It felt like the right thing for us to do was to try and nip it in the bud."

The website said exceptions to the visitor ban will be made on compassionate grounds although this does not apply to the maternity department or children's ward.
