39 Hampshire Schoolchildren Fall Ill After Visiting Broadlands

39 Hampshire schoolchildren have fallen ill with stomach bugs after visiting the Broadlands estate at Romsey.

Jason Anderson, Head Teacher at Romsey Primary School, said:

“I can confirm that 39 of our 190 pupils on roll were taken ill with sickness and diarrhoea (yesterday 23 September) and are absent from school today. 

"When I was made aware of the number of children that are unwell I took immediate action to advise Public Health England. 

"They are acting swiftly to establish the cause of the illness and, in the meantime, we have followed their advice and asked parents to keep their children at home until have been clear of any symptoms for 48 hours. 

"This information has been shared with parents of those children who are currently well, so that they will take appropriate action should their child develop similar symptoms.
 
“Our priority is the health and wellbeing of the children who attend this school and we will continue to assist Public Health England with their investigations as may be required.”
