A ban on visiting patients at the Cumberland Infirmary

:00:18.:00:22.

in Carlisle's been extended throughout this weekend

:00:23.:00:24.

as staff manage a serious outbreak of norovirus.

:00:25.:00:26.

They say 60 patients are affected and have banned

:00:27.:00:28.

The first indications that an outbreak of the norovirus might

:00:29.:00:32.

be imminent came early in the week and then the situation

:00:33.:00:35.

rapidly deteriorated, causing the hospital

:00:36.:00:37.

on Wednesday to reluctantly ban all but essential visits.

:00:38.:00:47.

A couple of reasons. One is the dignity of the patients. We have

:00:48.:00:56.

patients in there with diarrhoea and vomiting. It is not nice to be

:00:57.:01:01.

around people when they have this. There is also the protection of the

:01:02.:01:04.

patients because visitors may contribute to the spread of

:01:05.:01:07.

infection probably unwittingly. They did have a similar

:01:08.:01:12.

norovirus outbreak at the Infirmary two years ago

:01:13.:01:14.

but this time, touch wood, the hospital staff feel they have

:01:15.:01:16.

got on top of the situation quicker. It is less severe than a couple of

:01:17.:01:27.

years ago. We had under 60 patients in affected areas at the moment and

:01:28.:01:31.

it has been falling over the last couple of days since we introduced

:01:32.:01:35.

this measure. We will review everything on Monday and hopefully

:01:36.:01:38.

we will make a decision about whether we can ease restrictions in

:01:39.:01:39.

place currently. Police have launched a murder

:01:40.:01:41.

investigation in Hexham. They were called to the Studio Sport

:01:42.:01:44.

Bar on Priest-popple. A 32-year-old man was found

:01:45.:01:47.

with head injuries. A 25-year-old man's been arrested -

:01:48.:01:50.

on suspicion of murder. There's major disruption this

:01:51.:01:56.

weekend for motorists in Hartlepool. The eastbound carriageway

:01:57.:01:58.

of the A689 into the town will be closed until early tomorrow

:01:59.:02:02.

morning for re-surfacing. You can get to the village

:02:03.:02:06.

of Newton Bewley but all Hartlepool-bound

:02:07.:02:08.

traffic's being diverted. Celebrations have been taking place

:02:09.:02:13.

to mark Chinese New Year Events were held at

:02:14.:02:16.

of the rooster was marked by celebrations at the Library

:02:24.:02:35.

and Winter Gardens, with demonstrations of martial arts,

:02:36.:02:37.

arts and craft displays and dances featuring traditional

:02:38.:02:39.

animal costumes. We are doing a Lion dance today

:02:40.:02:49.

which is one of them major celebration dances. Where did these

:02:50.:02:57.

come from and how do they feed into the celebrations? The Lion dances

:02:58.:03:01.

from southern China but that dragon dances from the whole of China. In

:03:02.:03:06.

our traditional celebrations, we have the lion. We have the dragon

:03:07.:03:13.

team and the unicorn team. We all come out to celebrate that

:03:14.:03:18.

everyone's fortune and wealth. Chinese New Year is like a brand-new

:03:19.:03:28.

beginning. We have a good ear and good health.

:03:29.:03:31.

It was a similar story in Durham, where another lion dance

:03:32.:03:35.

That is a flavour of some of the celebrations but in Newcastle,

:03:36.:03:46.

preparations are underway for the celebrations tomorrow.

:03:47.:03:50.

:04:27.:04:34.

We have variable amounts of cloud overnight and some showers and some

:04:35.:04:40.

:04:41.:04:48.

frost to enable ice to form. Surface water hanging around. Temperatures

:04:49.:04:53.
