Temple Street Restrictions Extended

Temple Street Children's Hospital has extended a visiting restriction "until further notice".

On Monday the hospital said it would only allow parents and guardians to visit patients, due to an increase in the number of cases of a highly contagious vomiting bug.

The restriction has been put in place in an effort to limit the risk of the bug spreading.

The public is asked to only come to the hospital in an emergency.
