Hong Kong hotel room 'lockdown'


More than 300 guests at the Metropark hotel in Hong Kong have been banned from leaving after a guest became ill with swine flu.

Eddie Sweeney and his wife, from Buckinghamshire, are in the hotel under quarantine after arriving in Hong Kong on Friday for two night stop-over.

Mr Sweeney says he is confined to the hotel room, apart from collecting meals, and will be required to stay until May 8th.

The footage in this clip was filmed by another guest inside the Metropark hotel.
