Members of the public are being invited to come forward with information about the South Wales E.Coli outbreak in September 2005. Between September and December last year, 158 people were infected by the outbreak and a five-year old boy died.

The Public Inquiry was set up by the National Assembly for Wales to undertake a thorough investigation into the outbreak and is being led by Professor Hugh Pennington.

The Inquiry wants to hear from anyone who was affected in some way by the outbreak, particularly if they had E.coli themselves or if a member of their family had it. The information might relate to the circumstances that led to the outbreak or to how it was handled.

Chairman of the Inquiry Professor Hugh Pennington said: 'We know of many people and organisations that were affected by the outbreak or involved in it, and we are in the process of contacting them for information. However, there may well be others who have relevant information on the outbreak or the way it was handled. As I've said before, I am committed to involving the public in the Inquiry and this is one way in which it can reach out to people. This way, anyone who feels that they have any information that could help the Inquiry in its work has an opportunity to come forward.'
