Ward of flies closed

23rd September 2009

An infestation of flies has closed a specialist ward at Bristol's new £60m Heart Institute.

The coronary care unit was closed as a precaution in early August, and hospital officials are working to reopen it in early October. A blocked drain is being blamed, and experts have been drafted in to report on what caused the problem at the facility which is scheduled to treat more than 15,000 people annually and carry out up to five heart operations daily.
