Latest updates South West England (European Parliament constituency)



New measures planned to help prevent spread of bird flu

Adrian Campbell, Environment Correspondent

The government has set out plans to update temporary measures put in place to reduce the risk of avian flu.

The disease has caused the deaths of wild birds and poultry in 14 European countries and the Avian Influenza Prevention Zone was declared in December following an outbreak of bird flu among turkeys at a farm in Lincolnshire.

The new plans will come into force once the current prevention zone expires on 28 February.
