A PLAYGROUP in Littleport closed for two days this week after a child was diagnosed with swine flu.

The Busy Bees playgroup, which is run from a room at the village's Millfield Primary School, was closed on Monday and Tuesday.

No cases have been reported at the primary school itself, which remained open.

Wayne Perez-Bent, chairman of the Busy Bees committee, said: "Tracy Rudderham, the playgroup leader, and I took the decision to close purely as a precaution.

"We were told on Sunday night that a little girl had been diagnosed with swine flu and was taking medication and we discussed what we should do. We looked on the internet for guidance, which says swine flu is now at a treatment stage and not containment. Although the guidance recommended we stay open, we decided to close as a precaution. We wanted to take an active role; there are so many conflicting reports so we wanted to give some peace of mind to parents.
