A mid Suffolk farm has announced it is reopening its doors after it was forced to close due to visitors becoming ill.

Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm, between Great Blakenham and Needham Market, had to shut its doors at the end of April after four visitors became ill.

It is thought the illness was linked to an outbreak of E.coli and not linked to the animals. 

After being closed for more than a month, the farm has revealed it is to reopen its doors on Sunday, May 26. 

It will be open between 10am and 5pm.

Last month, Sarah Weir, consultant in health protection at UK Health Security Agency East of England, said: "Visiting farms to meet the animals is a fun activity for all to enjoy and hand hygiene is the best way to avoid germs that may be passed from animals.

"Symptoms of STEC include severe diarrhoea (including bloody diarrhoea), stomach cramps, vomiting and fever. Contact NHS 111 if you or your child have bloody diarrhoea."
