Butlins Bognor Regis hit by sickness bug. Contact Pannone LLP on 0800 0384 384

An outbreak of illness at Butlins, Bognor Regis, which has affected up to 200 holidaymakers, is thought to have been caused by the norovirus bug.

 
PRLog - June 22, 2011 - Travel law specialist, Clare Campbell, a Partner at Manchester law firm, Pannone, said, “We are awaiting confirmation from health and safety experts but if norovirus or possibly something even more serious is confirmed as the cause of illness, it means questions must be asked about hygiene standards and food handling procedures at this location.”

Noroviruses are a group of viruses that are the most common cause of stomach bugs in the UK. They are easily transmitted from one person to another by contact with an infected person or through contaminated food or drink or touching contaminated surfaces or objects. Those affected can suffer from severe stomach cramps, vomiting and diarrhoea and whilst symptoms usually last for a few days only, they can be dangerous, particularly for the very young and elderly if not monitored closely. Dehydration is the main danger and medical attention should be sought if people are at all worried about the condition of anyone affected.

Commented Ms Campbell, “Outbreaks of norovirus are more commonly associated with hospitals, schools, nursing homes and cruise ships, but our experience shows that hotels and holiday complexes are also susceptible, due to the close proximity of people and the fact they share facilities like swimming pools where the virus spreads. We will be advising anyone contacting us who has suffered illness due to this outbreak in Bognor Regis as to whether they have a claim for compensation against Butlins.”
