The Athletes' Village at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow has been hit with an outbreak of diarrhoea and vomiting just a week before the start of the event.

Organisers have confirmed that members of the workforce have the symptoms, but they stress that only a "small number" of cases have been reported.

A spokesman for Glasgow 2014 is quoted by BBC News as saying: "We have been made aware of a small number of diarrhoea and vomiting cases being reported from workforce in the village, which we are investigating."

Athletes are due to be arriving at the site in Dalmarnock for the Games, which get underway on July 23.
