SEVEN people are being tested in Bristol (UK) for possible swine flu. Wiltshire Primary Care Trust confirmed seven people from the county were being tested at a Health Protection Agency (HPA) facility in Bristol. Results were expected later today. Flights to Mexico from Bristol Airport have also been cancelled, with holiday firm First Choice axing routes to Cancun and Comuzel up to and including May 8. Dr Maggie Rae said: "Like elsewhere in the UK, there are a small number of Wiltshire residents who have recently returned from Mexico and who have contacted their GP or NHS Direct with concerns about possible flu-like symptoms.
