    Yep, just been reading that on the BBC digital text service. Moral of story is indeed to add screenwash and not just use water. lol

    I liked the bit where it said....

    "The finding came after researchers spotted that professional drivers are five times more likely to be infected. "

    ...so does that mean they (taxi, bus, van drivers etc.) are too tight or simply can't be bothered to add screenwash?! lol

    Interestingly, I added bleach to my washer to clean it following advice on here, as it was starting to stink...

    Glad to hear I'm getting rid of the foul smell AND avoiding legionaires disease!

    Not trying to be funny here but, drivers who don't have the air con system cleaned could be a more logical explanation.
