    “The illnesses David and the rest of the holidaymakers have suffered during their holidays to the Dominican Republic have been extremely difficult for them to deal with. “The symptoms continue to impact some of their lives, and they are understandably frustrated that the problems they suffered could be linked to the illness they developed at the Riu Bambu resort. “The last thing David expected when he booked the holiday with Georgia was to be returning to the UK feeling worse than when he left. He has told us of a number of hygiene concerns he had about the resort and we have launched an investigation into the hygiene practices in place at the time of their stay. “We would urge anyone else who suffered with illness or encountered similar problems during their stay at the resort to contact us as they may be able to help with our investigations.”

    United Utilities Sentenced Following Franklaw Water Bug Outbreak In 2015

    “We welcome today’s sentencing and the holding of United Utilities to account. The discovery of the parasite in the water was extremely concerning. “Drinking unsafe water can have a profound effect on a person’s health and can cause long-term issues, from which some victims may never fully recover. Protecting the general public from outbreaks like these has to be the main priority for companies like United Utilities. “Cryptosporidium can have serious health implications for those affected and in our work we have seen first-hand the long-term issues that it can cause from which some victims may sadly never fully recover. “We are working with our clients to ensure they get the answers they deserve as to how the cryptosporidium parasite came to be present in the tap water.”
