Six struck down by new E.coli outbreak.

AT least six people were hit by a new outbreak of the E.coli food bug and two more are suspected victims, health chiefs revealed yesterday.

All those affected - aged 14 to 91 - have recovered. But experts fear further cases could still emerge and people in the area have been warned meat in fridges and freezers may not be safe.

The victims are believed to have eaten contaminated meat from a butcher's shop in Winchelsea, East Sussex. Owner James Wickens said he would only reopen after a refit. It is believed the meat may have been affected before it was delivered to Mr Wickens.
