Guests fall ill at hotel

Scarborough’s Red Lea Hotel has confirmed that eleven guests have fallen sick.

Environmental Health have been contacted after the guests, some of whom were pensioners, experienced sickness and diarrhoea after arriving on Sunday.

Nick Allen, of the South Cliff hotel, confirmed that some of the guests started experiencing symptoms, which he described as being akin to those of the norovirus, on Monday evening.

Mr Allen added that samples had been taken away by Environmental Health to try and pinpoint the source of the sickness.
