    (Due to poor reporting the evacuations seemed to have been prompted by the illness but its not. Evacs due to flooding. Very poor writing skills on several of these reports)

    He said: "I saw a yellow hose coming from the front window on the ground floor. Whether it was pumping out water or something else, I don't know.

      Boy, seven, dies as Chertsey homes evacuated

      A seven-year-old boy has died and his parents are in a serious condition in hospital after an incident at a house in Surrey.

      Police said the family were taken ill at a house in Thameside, Chertsey, in the early hours.

      Officers said the cause of his illness was not yet known but they could not rule out a link to recent flooding.

      Fifteen people, including officers, were taken to hospital as a precaution and nearby homes were evacuated.

      Ch Supt Dave Miller said: "The cause of the illness is currently unknown but what I can confirm is that the people who were taken ill are from a very localised area.

      'Vomiting and diarrhoea'

      "We cannot rule out that there may be a link to flooding in the local area and whilst the investigation is ongoing, local residents should follow sensible precautions."

      He said residents from properties near the house were advised to go to hospital to be checked as a precaution.

        UK floods: Boy, 7, dies as parents 'pump out water'

        A young boy has died of suspected carbon monoxide poisoning after being overcome by fumes from the pump his family were apparently using to remove flood water

        By Patrick Sawer
        4:23PM GMT 08 Feb 2014

        The seven-year-old boy was rushed to hospital on Saturday, along with his parents, after the stricken family were discovered by fire crews evacuating homes in Chertsey, Surrey, as the River Thames burst its banks.

        Police were called by ambulance crews after a child and his father were ?taken unwell? at a house in Thameside, at 3.30am.

        The boy was pronounced dead at Chertsey Hospital, while his father, aged in his 40s, and his mother, aged in her 30s, remain in a serious but not life-threatening condition.
        ...
        David North, who works in Chertsey, said: ?Properties were in the middle of being evacuated because of the flooding in the area and a house was found with an adult and a child possibly with carbon monoxide poisoning.?

        He said a pump was coming out of the window of the house where the casualties are believed to have been taken from and he suspected that fumes from the pump motor could be to blame.
        ...
        Chief Superintendent Dave Miller, from Surrey Police, said the weather was ?one line of inquiry? they were pursuing in relation to the boy?s death.
        ...
        ?We are currently following various lines of enquiry and it would be wrong to speculate on the cause of death at this stage. The cause of the illness is currently unknown but what I can confirm is that the people who were taken ill are from a very localised area.?

              Operation Orne update: Officers continue to work with partner agencies on the investigation into boy's death
              ...
              Yesterday evening water samples were obtained from the basement of the property by Environment Agency staff and analysed overnight with support from Thames Water.

              Based on the results of the analysis, we have concluded that there is nothing in the water samples that may explain the cause of the incident.

              The Environment Agency is continuing to assist on the ongoing police enquiry.' Chief Superintendent Dave Miller, from Surrey Police, said: "The investigation into Zane's tragic death is ongoing - our officers are following various lines of enquiry and we are continuing to work with a number of partner agencies.

              "The information we have received from our partners at the Environment Agency in relation to the preliminary water testing gives an indication that there is no link between the quality of water at the location and the boy's death.

              "The cause of death may take several days to determine and until we have confirmation of this it would be inappropriate to speculate.

              "However, I hope that this development provides some reassurance to local residents.? -

                  Zane Gbangbola death: Post-mortem finds 'no clear cause' of death

                  ...

                  People in the area have described seeing pipes coming from the family's house but it is not known whether a water pump was being used.

                  A Surrey Police spokesman said tests were continuing into the cause of Zane's death.

                  Officers have refused to be drawn on suggestions that carbon monoxide could have been to blame...
