Norovirus ruined festive season for 150,000 people - and it hasn't peaked yet, warn officials

More than 150,000 people had a miserable Christmas after they were struck down with the winter vomiting bug, figures suggest.

During the last two weeks of 2012, the Health Protection Agency (HPA) confirmed 529 cases of norovirus.

But for every reported case, an estimated 288 are not flagged up.
