Amanda Devlin of The Sun reports a bride and groom who thought they were suffering from wedding day jitters had actually been struck down by a gastric illness – as well as half of their guests.
Now 60 holidaymakers have hired international personal injury lawyers, Irwin Mitchell, to investigate the outbreak.
Gemma, a transport administration clerk, who was staying at the Marelen Hotel with her husband-to-be and their daughter Sylvie said: “When we both started suffering illness on our wedding day we just put it down to being nervous, but we quickly realised it was a lot more than that when the symptoms continued for the next few days.”
The symptoms persisted and both Gemma and Lee, from Pontefract, West Yorks., were forced to time off work when they returned home.
Tests confirmed Gemma was suffering from Cryptosporidium.
