100,000 were struck down with Norovirus in the UK over Christmas

Around 100,000 people were struck down with the winter vomiting bug over Christmas, latest figures suggested as it emerged the number of confirmed cases was 72% higher than this time last year.

The dramatic rise was attributed in part to an early outbreak of the illness which closed dozens of hospital wards as it swept across the country.

A total of 3,877 laboratory-confirmed cases of norovirus have now been recorded in England and Wales - up on the 2,255 of last year.
