Scottish racecourse to face food compensation claims?

Scottish racecourse to face food compensation claims 2203

Several claims for food poisoning compensation could be made against the owners of a racecourse in Scotland, it has emerged.

Some 11 recent visitors to the Hamilton Park course in South Lanarkshire have fallen ill after eating at the location, with three of those diagnoses so far requiring hospital treatment due to the severity of their symptoms.

While no source for the bug has been established, the public health protection arm of NHS Lanarkshire is now investigating these cases and it is thought likely that goods consumed at Hamilton Park are to blame.

Consultant in public health medicine at the organisation Dr David Cromie commented: "A number of people became ill whilst at Hamilton races ... our initial investigations would suggest this was linked to the food they ate."

This comes after the Adonis Kebab House takeaway in Cardiff was closed indefinitely because numerous customers have fallen ill after eating there recently.
