The British family from Essex were on a luxury holiday in the Sunwing Waterworld Makadi Hotel in Egypt on 2014.
The family were bitten by the bed bugs on their first nights stay in the resort. Mrs. Cookson said her holiday was ruined. The travel firm agreed to pay £11,000 compensation for her ordeal.
Bed bugs are certainly on the increase in Tyne and Wear. We are treating ten times more bed bug infestations now than we did three years ago.
Bed bug treatments require the cooperation of the householder or hotelier to be 100% effective and anyone who tells you they can effectively treat bed bugs with one treatment is going to take you for a ride.
