Portmeirion is a popular tourist village in Gwynedd, North Wales. Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, Portmeirion’s designer, denied repeated claims that the design was based on the town of Portofino, Italy.

Using an injury lawyer in Portmeirion after you have eaten contaminated food
Eating contaminated food causes food poisoning; usually it is contaminated by bacteria, but can also be contaminated by a virus such as the norovirus. Care should be taken when preparing and cooking food, most precautions being common sense and basic hygiene. The sorts of things food outlets need to do are:
- Make sure food is cooked properly
- Make sure the food has been stored at the recommended temperature
- Don’t keep cooked food at warm temperatures too long before eating them
- Always use food before the prescribed date
- Make sure all preparation and cooking areas are kept clean
- Always wash their hands before handling food
- Avoid cross contamination of foods
If you have eaten out anywhere, or perhaps had a take away, and you become ill afterwards, you should speak to an injury lawyer in Portmeirion about making a personal injury claim.

Reporting your food poisoning
