THE MANAGER of Exmouth's World of Country Life has stressed the visitor attraction is not closed amid fears of an E.coli outbreak.
Nigel Lee said 90 per cent of the site remained open despite what had been claimed in some national and provincial media reports following a press release issued by the Health Protection Agency.
East Devon District Council and the HPA advised the precautionary closure of the farm yesterday.
The advice was issued further to information which potentially linked the site with three individuals with confirmed E.coli 0157 infection.
