Elderly residents at a sheltered housing block in Lincoln are being offered bottled water to drink and off site washing facilities after the deadly bacteria legionella was discovered in the water system.
The bacteria, which was discovered at St Botolph's Court, is particularly dangerous if it becomes airborne as it can be inhaled and develop into the life threatening 'Legionnaire's disease' and pneumonia.
A specialist company is currently chemically flushing out the affected pipework.
