Legionella is in the mains water, in puddles, in the plumbing systems, in the palace pond, just about everywhere in tiny amounts.
It only becomes a problem if the water is tepid and stagnant and it can proliferate into large quantities, the water is atomised AND someone inhales the water. Anyone who neglects the chemical water treatment of a wet cooling tower nowadays deserves everthing the HSE can find to throw at them.
You'd hope a journalist would know better. Especially the BBC, who had an embarrassment with legionella a few years ago.
This sounds like the same barracks where chairs have been removed from dormitories on health and safety grounds, just in case someone should attempt to use the chair to get to their ladderless top bunk?
'Legionella', you don't mean that french stripper who does the soldier-o-gram routine do you?
My mates set me up with her once. She climbed all over me and tried to sit on my face. I wouldn't have minded but my mates had got the dates wrong.
It wasn't at my stag night but my parents silver wedding aniversary dinner.
