Crawley children infected with E.coli

Three children from the Crawley area are among those affected by the E.coli outbreak, which started at the Godstone Farm attraction near Redhill, says the Leader of West Sussex County Council.

Cllr Henry Smith said: "As a parent of young children myself I can only imagine the anguish of those families who have children that are seriously ill in hospital as a consequence of this infection. My thoughts and prayers go out to them.

"The public have a right to feel safe, especially when visiting attractions designed to entertain and educate youngsters. I have taken my children to such farms locally and the thought that they might be dangerous is frightening."
