Migrants removed from the Bibby Stockholm barge after bacteria were found

Legionella bacteria, commonly found in water, can cause a serious type of pneumonia known as Legionnaires’ disease. The Home Office said the 39 asylum seekers at the Bibby Stockholm had been removed “as a precautionary measure” but none are ill. The Legionella bacteria test was carried out before the asylum seekers came on board, but the results, which showed levels of the Legionella bacteria that required further investigation, only arrived this week, according to Home Office sources. Carlos Hymas and Max Stephen explain where the bacteria is thought to come from.
