Claudia Tanner of the Daily Mail reports that an idyllic holiday turned into a health nightmare for a couple when they were struck down with salmonella poisoning at a luxury resort.
Three days into their stay, the pair suffered extreme vomiting, diarrhoea, sweating and stomach cramps in September last year.
Paul, a HGV driver, revealed how he spent the remainder of the week-long holiday going to the toilet 40 times a day.
The pair, from East Kilbride, in South Lanarkshire, Scotland, claim food was left out for hours which attracted flies and the pool was dirty at the four-star Bella Vista Beach Club, where they had paid £620 for an all-inclusive stay.
Back home, Paul’s stools tested positive for salmonella – which is usually caused by eating contaminated food. Lesley was suspected of having the same.
The couple are now seeking compensation.
