Legionella in Norfolk

A Norfolk council is battling two cases of Legionella, a bacteria which can lead to a deadly disease.

The unrelated cases are both in north Norfolk, but their exact locations have not been revealed.

One is affecting a business and the other a home.

Legionella, which is often found in stagnant water, can cause Legionnaires’ disease when breathed in. Without treatment, this can lead to a potentially fatal form of pneumonia.

The presence of Legionella bacteria forced the Home Office to close the Bibby Stockholm barge last month, a vessel intended to house asylum seekers.
