Fire-hit trampoline park set to bounce back
A “SIGNIFICANT breakthrough” in understanding the virus family which includes the highly contagious norovirus winter vomiting bug could pave the way to better treatment, researchers have said.
A team of researchers have made a “major step forward” in understanding how the calicivirus family, which includes the highly infectious norovirus and sapoviruses, initiate infections.
The group of viruses is highly contagious and difficult to contain and can cause outbreaks of diarrhoea and vomiting, with the norovirus often responsible for hospitals closing wards and warning away visitors.
Outbreaks can also commonly occur in care homes, cruise ships, schools and hotels, while caliciviruses also cause cat flu in domestic cats, researchers said. Researchers led by the University of Glasgow made a “significant breakthrough” in understanding how it initiates infections.
Dr David Bhella said: ”We have made a significant breakthrough.” DESIGNS are being put into place for a ‘bigger and brighter’ trampoline park to replace the fireravaged facility in Bedworth.
Bosses at Red Kangaroo say that landlords are drawing up plans for the new-look venue following the devastating blaze which tore through the popular trampoline park off School Lane.
This is with a view of opening by the end of this year.
The news comes as the firm continues to receive an influx calls from people wanting to know when the facility will reopen again.
A spokesperson explained: “The landlords will be submitting their planning permission application in the next few months so the park can be redeveloped in to a bigger and brighter facility where the space is more usable.
“We are still hoping to be open by the end of 2019.
“Once planning has been submitted and hopefully approved the timescales will be far more accurate.”

At the height of the blaze back on October 18 last year, more than 70 firefighters tackled the flames. They managed to stop the fire from spreading to the reception area however the rest of the building, including the main trampoline park, was completely destroyed.
Specialist fire investigators from Warwickshire Fire and Rescue were called in to probe the cause of the fire and they concluded it was accidental.
