Gambling can be dangerous to your health.

Health chiefs are investigating a possible food poisoning incident after 11 people fell ill at a racecourse.

Three people needed hospital treatment after visiting Hamilton Park racecourse in South Lanarkshire on Monday.

They have since been discharged and are recovering well, as are the other eight people, NHS Lanarkshire said.

Dr David Cromie, consultant in public health medicine at NHS Lanarkshire, said, "A number of people became ill yesterday whilst at Hamilton races. Our initial investigations would suggest this was linked to the food they ate. No organism has been positively identified, as yet.”
