Theme park closes its water rides after children became 'violently sick' 


In a statement released by Melton Borough Council, it said PHE East Midlands, the Health and Safety Executive and the council are working with the theme park to investigate the reports and ensure that any necessary public health actions are taken.”

In a statement, Twinlakes said: “We regret that the Au Guang Dragon Zone water park is temporarily closed. We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause.

“As soon as we heard reports that some visitors have become ill following their visit to the water park we took the decision to close it as a precautionary measure.

“We are working closely with the Health and Safety Executive to investigate and hope to be able to provide information about the re-opening of the Au Guang Dragon water park very soon.

It said the rest of the theme park remains open, with only the water park shut during the investigation.

Dr Vanessa MacGregor, consultant of communicable disease control at Public Health England said: “Gastroenteritis (diarrhoea and vomiting) is an unpleasant illness but most people usually make a complete recovery without any specific treatment other than rest and drinking lots of fluids to avoid dehydration.

“There is no specific treatment for diarrhoea and vomiting so the public can help limit the spread of infection by staying away from their GP practice or hospital if they are feeling unwell.
