Infections tend to peak in spring and occur all over the country. Between January and May 2015 there were at least seven outbreaks of cryptosporidiosis linked to petting farms across England, affecting around 130 people.
E.Coli infections are less common, thankfully, as E.Coli 0157 can cause severe stomach pain, bloody diarrhoea and can affect kidney function.
