Birmingham County Court handed a landmark victory to 49 holidaymakers who were subjected to contaminated and dirty swimming pool water whilst staying at the Son Baulo Hotel in Majorca. Judge Worster criticised Thomson Holidays suggesting that the tour operator knew that the hotel's pool was infected with the holiday illness bug Cryptosporidium. It was claimed that the decision by the tour operator to continue to send holidaymakers to the hotel was 'probably largely motivated by commercial considerations'.
