    The Hollinwell incident which occurred in July 1980 remains a mystery, although there is speculation that the cause of approximately 300 children becoming ill at the Hollinwell Showground near Kirkby in Ashfield was the use of pesticides by local farmers. This may, if the speculation were true, have been grounds for filing a personal injury compensation claim against the farmers who used those pesticides. You may be able to claim with expert legal help in Kirkby in Ashfield.
