E coli outbreak linked to Belfast restaurant

Public health officials are investigating the possible link between a Belfast restaurant and an outbreak of E coli.

The management of Flicks restaurant at Cityside Mall on York Street has voluntarily closed the site while the Public Health Agency looks at what might have caused 11 confirmed or suspected cases of the bug.

The agency's Dr Michael Devine said the first case was discovered on 9 October and the restaurant closed on 11 October, according to the BBC.

In a statement, Flicks restaurant said: "We are fully co-operating with the Public Health Agency's investigation into a recent E coli outbreak.

"As soon as they contacted us regarding the investigation we immediately closed the restaurant.

"We will continue to assist the PHA in finding the source of this outbreak."
