A special school in Penarth will close for a fourth day after after an outbreak of norovirus.   Ysgol y Deri remains closed after a large number of adults and children were off with diarrhoea and vomiting.

The school confirmed a case of norovirus and closed on Friday so it could be cleaned.

On Friday, head teacher Chris Britten took the decision to shut the school and sent a letter to parents alerting them to the symptoms of the virus.

He said the school has many vulnerable pupils with compromised health.
