Legionnaires’ disease plumber out of hospital
A plumber who was taken to hospital with Legionnaires' disease after working on a disused building at a city college has been discharged.
It is thought the man became infected with the potentially fatal bug while working at New College, in New Parks, Leicester.
A colleague, who had also fallen ill, tested negative for the disease.
Leicester City Council bosses said they were confident the disease was isolated to a disused building which staff and students had not had access to for about seven years.
A council spokesman said they were still awaiting results of tests of samples taken across the college site.
He said there was no risk to the staff or the 900 students at the college.
