Kebab shop resumes trading

AN OUTBREAK of norovirus at a popular Wotton takeaway led to health officers closing the shop.

After health officers carried out tests and contacted customers who had been infected, trading was permitted to resume as of today.

A Stroud District Council spokesperson said: "As soon as we became aware of reports of people becoming ill, we arranged for the voluntary closure of the business on the same day (Monday, October 12); then inspected it the next day and took samples. Within 48 hours we had contacted most people who had experienced illness.

“Initial test results indicate the source is likely to be norovirus. To ensure that could not be passed on, the business remained closed for 10 days and can reopen today (Monday, October 26) following a deep clean on Friday.

“Our investigations continue and we are keeping public heath colleagues fully informed."

In thick fog, on the night of October 25th 1960, tankers the Wastdale H and Arkendale H collided in the River Seven off Sharpness. Five crewmen lost their lives when the vessels crashed into a pier of the Severn Rail Bridge, causing a span to collapse onto them. The cargo of oil and petroleum exploded, and reports spoke of the river being ablaze.
Firefighters from across the county, including a crew from Wotton-under-Edge, attended the incident but the chief officer denied them permission to try to reach the wrecks due to the dreadful conditions. They reached the wrecks at first light the following day to search for survivors, though without success.
The bridge was never repaired and demolished in the late 1960s. The wrecks of the boats can still be seen at low tide and serve as a reminder of the tragic events 60 years ago. (Video by Matt Bigwood)
