MORE than 4,000 people have fallen ill from drinking bottled water in Catalunya.

A brutal outbreak of norovirus struck 4,146 people down in Tarragona and Barcelona last week with complaints of stomach pains, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.

Doctors believe the water was contaminated and investigations are underway.

Water company Grupo Eden Springs, which specialises in water dispensers, has recalled over 6,000 bottles in the afflicted area ‘as a precautionary measure’.

The manager has also posted a message on Twitter apologising for ‘any inconvenience’ caused to customers.
