New vomiting bug outbreak feared in Dundee

Two wards at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee have been closed to new admissions following several suspected cases of norovirus.

The infection is commonly known as the winter vomiting bug. Wards 31 and 33 were closed as a "precautionary measure" according to NHS Tayside.

Two other wards at the hospital, 16 and 17, have now been reopened after an earlier outbreak of norovirus.

The health board asked anyone feeling unwell to avoid visiting hospital.
