Visiting restrictions have been put in place at Bristol hospitals following an outbreak of the winter vomiting bug norovirus.

Visiting times have been restricted to just one hour a day at the BRI Queen's Building, King Edward Building and Old Building and Bristol Heart Institute due to norovirus.
Only two people can now visit each bed between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.

James Rimmer, chief operating officer at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust - which runs the hospitals - said: "We do everything we can to prevent and control infection in our hospitals.
"We need to remind people to avoid visiting hospital if they have had symptoms of diarrhoea and vomiting in the previous 48 hours.
"We understand that people will want to visit family and friends in hospital, but we are asking people to keep visiting to a minimum so that we can continue to provide our patients with the best possible care."
At North Bristol NHS Trust there are just two bays closed at Frenchay Hospital as a result of diarrhoea and vomiting. There are no wards or bays closed to new patients at Southmead.
