Walkabout yesterday confirmed an investigation had been launched, while Watford Borough Council said it was aware of a number of reports of people falling ill following a night out in Watford.

A spokeswoman for Walkabout today told the Observer: “Walkabout was closed yesterday afternoon to investigate the situation after one customer reported that they had been ill following a visit to the site and further claims were made on social media.

“Environmental health officers have been unable to find any evidence to suggest that the site, which has a five star food hygiene rating, can be linked to the claims. It has now reopened."

Watford Borough Council has been approached for comment.
