Parts of the country are approaching epidemic levels of flu not seen in a decade, health officials have warned, as they announced that 14 people have now died after contracting swine influenza.

Britain now has the third highest number of cases of swine flu in the world after America and Mexico, where the virus was first reported.

An estimated 8,000 people are thought to have contracted the disease in Britain in the last week, from around 27,000 who called their GP complaining of the flu.

Statistics show there are currently 335 people in hospital in England suffering from swine flu, with 43 of these in critical care.

The new information doubles the number of reported deaths since the last update three days ago, although officials stressed that some patients would have died before then and later added to official figures.
