Irwin Mitchell succeeded in recovering over £90,000.00 in compensation for 13 holidaymakers who stayed at the Kilifi Bay, Kenya during a Christmas holiday break. 12 of the 13 holiday makers became ill as a result of failings in food hygiene procedures at the hotel, suffering unpleasant symptoms including vomiting and diarrhoea.

The tour operator admitted liability and negotiations were entered into prior to reaching a Trial on the matter.
