The Health Protection Agency should have closed down visits to Godstone Farm earlier. E.coli is too serious an illness to take risks with.

BBC News reports on the very serious E.coli outbreak linked to Godstone Farm in Surrey.

The Health Protection Agency doesn't seem to be much good at protecting health, does it? It should have erred on the side of caution. I wonder why it didn't? It's foresight they should be using in that sort of job, not hindsight. In my view, their delay in closing down visits to the farm is indefensible and they bear a heavy share of responsibility for the grave illness of some little children.

Extract from the BBC report:

"Tracy Mock, 39, from Paddock Wood, Kent, said her two-year-old twin boys were taken ill after visiting the farm on 31 August.

"If they had just shut the place down to investigate, my sons would not be in hospital on kidney dialysis machines," she said."
