Cristina Calafateanu, 24, now needs a walking frame to get about after a gastric bug she caught after staying at the Baron Palace Sahl Hasheesh in Hurghada, booked through Thomas Cook, caused her to develop arthritis.

Cristina Calafateanu says she and husband Liviu suffered diarrhoea and severe stomach cramps just three days into their week-long stay in Egypt.

When she returned to the UK she was diagnosed with bacterial infection Shigella – before medics told her the illness had triggered a form of arthritis.
