Health officials in France said workers at Airbus Atlantic’s site in the west of the country suffered from vomiting and diarrhoea.

The ARS health agency has not revealed what was on the menu at the event, which was held last week.
An investigation was being launched to find the source of the mass food poisoning, the organisation told the AFP news agency.
