Ealing Central Library has re-opened following bed bug infestation after being closed since last week Monday (30 October).

The library has said: "Please be advised that the library has recently experienced a minor pest outbreak.

"The library has been treated with an application of pest control chemicals and we continue to monitor the situation.

"All other libraries are also open as usual and Council Service Advisor staff are available at Acton, Southall and Northolt libraries."

Previously infested furniture still remains at the library, but has been sectioned off and is out of use to the public.

Bedbugs are small insects that often live on furniture or bedding.

Their bites can be itchy, but do not usually cause other health problems says the NHS.
