WEDDING NIGHTMARE AS 20 GUESTS GET VOMITING BUG

A BRIDE and grooms wedding celebrations turned into a nightmare after around 20 guests were later struck down by the winter vomiting bug.

The Dundee couple were also affected by the outbreak of norovirus, with people advising the couple of their situation after the occasion.

Heather Albin and Steven Campbell, who were married at the Westpark Conference Centre, in Perth Road, described the aftermath of the event as a nightmare.

Bride Heather said: We had an amazing day but a couple of days later we were hearing that many of our guests had been hit by acute sickness and diarrhoea.

She said that she and her new groom had also been unwell, adding: I got it first, followed by Steve.

At the beginning of January, around 20 of our guests had been in touch to say they and their families were feeling terrible its been a nightmare.

So many of the people who attended the wedding were affected that we wondered if it could have been something we ate at the wedding.

However, I have now been told it is more likely to be something viral.

Heather and some of the other wedding guests reported the situation to the environmental health department of Dundee City Council.

A spokeswoman for NHS Tayside confirmed they had been contacted as well, adding: NHS Taysides health protection team and environmental health officers from Dundee City Council have investigated reports of a number of cases of vomiting and diarrhoea in people who attended an event at Westpark Conference Centre.

No cause or source has been confirmed but the pattern of the outbreak is consistent with a norovirus type illness. Norovirus, also known as the winter vomiting bug, commonly circulates within the community at this time of year and is easily spread between people.

Staff at the centre have fully supported the process and are working closely with NHS Tayside and Dundee City Council.

A spokeswoman for the Westpark Centre said: We were saddened to hear that some of the wedding party have been ill and weve been working very closely to support the health authoritys investigations.

The couple, who got married on Hogmanay, said it was an unfortunate incident.

Heather added: Theres no rhyme or reason for what has happened.

Its just one of those things.
