A resident at a retirement development in Rutland has tested positive for Legionnaires’ disease.

A number of potential sources at Ranksborough Hall Park in Langham have been tested to try and identify the source of infection. So far, tests have shown Legionella bacteria at one source.

Public Health England has said the area was immediately treated.

Rutland County Council is now working with the site owner to monitor the situation.
