Major illness outbreak at a hotel in Turkey - UK tour operator fails to recognise significant change rights to be given to holidaymakers

We are due to fly out to the [NAME OF HOTEL] in Turkey this Monday 31st Aug’09 with our 4 small children ( 3 & 1 yrs old) with grandparents and I am petrified about the situation that is occuring out there at the moment and hope that you could help. There has been an article in the [NAME OF NATIONAL NEWSPAPER] yesterday regarding Salmonella, sickness & Diarrhoea etc. We approached [NAME OF TOUR OPERATOR] this morning to try to change our holiday who advised us that they didn’t really know much about this problem & that because we fly in 6 days the only option was to cancel which means we would lose out on £2000.Why on earth hasn’t this hotel been closed if this is the case & why are [NAME OF HOTEL] still sending their customers there? I really am very upset about the whole thing and need some advise please.
