IT directors brave stomach bug cruise ship

Delegates at this year's City IT conference displayed a phlegmatic attitude to boarding P&O's cruise liner the Aurora, after its return from a Mediterranean holiday cruise that saw hundreds of passengers infected with a contagious stomach bug.

"We in IT are used to dealing with bugs and viruses," said one delegate last week.

"This is probably the safest time to be on board, just as the safest time to fly is just after a plane crash," added another.

Tim Jones, conference chairman and former NatWest chief executive of retail banking, said, "I didn't get ill last time and have no intention of getting ill this time."
