A hospital has reopened to visitors more than a week after it closed due to a norovirus outbreak.

Hywel Dda health board closed Prince Philip Hospital in Llanelli on 2 December because patients had diarrhoea and vomiting.

Infection control measures were put in place at the Carmarthenshire hospital.

The 205-bed general hospital reopened on Tuesday. The board asked patients and visitors to wash their hands to prevent the spread of infections.
