The BBC reports that a vomiting bug has accessed three wards at the hospital.
The Spoof has visited the hospital and found out that the bug is actually a Stag Beetle with a bad case of gastric flu.
Having puked up on both staff and patients the beetle was then rounded up, quarantined, and transferred the the Beetle Vets in Barrow for further tests.
Security staff at the hospital said that it put up quite a fight, not only covering them in sick, but also nipping them quite badly. "It's not often that you get such a nasty bug in a place like this," said one staff member.
