'We can confirm that children from Romsey Primary School were on an Education Day at Broadlands in Romsey yesterday (Sept 23).
'The day was organised by the charity Countryside Learning to help children experience first hand aspects of the countryside including farming, fishing, forestry and wildlife including bees and falconry. Full risk assessments were carried out by all parties.
'A number of children were taken ill but at this time it has not been confirmed that any sickness was related to the visit. We will support Public Health England and the local authorities in their investigation. In the meantime, we wish the children a speedy recovery.'
