Bretton Water Park in Peterborough will re-open on Thursday after tests for suspected Ecoli in the water came back clear.

The water park was originally closed because of an outbreak of Norovirus at the end of the July which led to several children becoming ill. Last week tests on the water found traces of the Ecoli bacteria which is some cases can be life threatening.

Paul Phillipson, Executive Director of Operations for Peterborough City Council, told Heart “As we have maintained from the beginning, public health safety is our main focus and the latest test results clearly show that the park is now safe to use. I’d also like to thank members of the public for their patience and I only hope they can now be rewarded with some nice weather in order to enjoy it.”
