Compensation sought for holiday illness
A family who were struck with an illness while abroad are seeking compensation.
In June 2008, Simon and Denise Inglut travelled to the Bulgarian city of Bourgas, which is situated in the south-east of the country and is its fourth largest city.
They were among 300 guests who made complaints over sickness and other alleged problems at the resort they stayed at, the Newbury Weekly News Group reports.
The family group, which included the couple's four young sons and their nephew, continued to suffer from sickness upon their return to the UK.
Commenting on the case, a spokesperson for the family's legal team stated: "Where someone has had a continuing illness once they return home, we tend to look at a compensation claim of £10,000 per person."
Ms Inglut stated that the battle could "go all the way to the high court".
Meanwhile, holiday organisers First Choice were not available to comment on the issue.
