WEBWIRE – Tuesday, November 11, 2008

Specialist travel law solicitor Andrew Morton, from Manchester law firm Pannone, has confirmed that holidaymakers returning from the Riu Park El Kebir hotel in Hammamet, Tunisia, have been diagnosed with salmonella poisoning. Mr Morton’s law firm is now investigating the situation for a number of clients.

Commented Andrew Morton from Pannone, “From all reports coming out of the resort, we expect the number of cases to rise significantly over the next few days. Hammamet is a major winter sun destination and we expect the number of people affected to rise significantly over the next few days.”

He added finally, “Anyone returning to the UK from this hotel who has been ill, should see their doctor immediately. They should also keep any evidence of having been sick, such as receipts for medicines purchased and hospital bills, plus the names and addresses of fellow tourists who may be able to confirm that they were ill. I would also urge them to seek advice from a specialist travel law solicitor.”
