Meat firm in E.coli outbreak reopens.

THE meat supplier at the centre of the South Wales E.coli outbreak reopened yesterday.

Health chiefs lifted a prohibition on Bridgend-based John Tudor and Son, on Friday.

Manager Celyn Williams said the firm began trading again yesterday following an inspection.

Bridgend County Borough Council closed the company in September when it was linked to the spread of E.coli O157 in 42 Valleys schools.

Five-year-old Mason Jones, of Deri, near Bargoed, died and more than 150 people were affected.

A judge quashed the emergency order on the firm last month.

A Bridgend council spokesman said: "Late on Friday afternoon the council issued a certificate basically lifting the prohibition notice that we served."

The outbreak is being investigated by police and an inquiry led by Professor Hugh Pennington.

In a statement the council said: "Bridgend County Borough Council issued certificates on Friday, December 9, 2005, confirming that the authority is satisfied that there is no longer a risk to health in relation to emergency prohibition notices served on the firm on 19 and 20 September 2005
