Two more cases of E.coli have been confirmed in Orkney, with a third suspected case currently being investigated. All three cases are children who attend the same nursery in Kirkwall.

NHS Orkney said there was no evidence to suggest transmission of the infection had taken place at the premises but health officials will now screen children and staff as a precaution.

There have already been six other confirmed cases of E. coli infection in Orkney since August.
