Last farewells to tragic Mason
Wales on Sunday reports that the funeral of the five-year-old victim of Wales’ E.coli food poisoning outbreak will take place in his home town tomorrow.
Family and friends of Mason Jones will gather to say their last goodbyes to the tragic youngster, who fought for his life for two weeks in intensive care when his E. coli infection turned into kidney failure.
The number of cases of E.coli now stand at a total of 161 people, mostly children, affecting 42 schools.
The outbreak was likely to be caused by somebody handling cooked meats after touching raw meat, or not cleaning a piece of equipment properly.
