That would be Legionella, otherwise known as Legionaires Disease.
There have been a couple of major outbreaks in the UK very recently. One in Edinburgh, resulting in 3 deaths and more than one hundred people being treated in hospital.
The second outbreak, only 3 weeks ago was in Stoke on Trent and resulted in 6 people being treated in hospital.
