UK family endure Salmonella hell on Tunisia holiday

A Black Country holidaymaker has been awarded more than £2,600 compensation after a family getaway to grieve for a loved one ended in disaster.

salm.tunsiaJulie Roberts, from Walsall, had booked the special trip to Tunisia to spend time with her mother and sister following their loss.

But the family’s hopes of rest and relaxation turned sour when Julie was struck down with violent stomach cramps and severe diarrhea on the last day of the holiday.

It was only after returning to the UK that a visit to her GP confirmed she had contracted Salmonella while staying at the Dessole Riviera Resort in Port El Kantaoui.

The hotel has been blasted by reviewers on TripAdvisor, one of whom claims to have had “better hospital meals.”
