Devon beach blamed for child's illness

A mother has claimed that her daughter became ill with cryptosporidiosis after swimming in the sea off the coast of Devon. Paulina Town made the connection when she discovered that the water quality in the area was poor and said "When I told the nurse that she had been swimming at Wildersmouth in Ilfracombe, she pulled a bit of a face and said several people had been ill after swimming there. She said she wouldn't even take her dog in the water there".
