Survey reveals Oxfordshire ash dieback case

Oxfordshire's first confirmed case of Chalara ash dieback has been highlighted on a map published by the Forestry Commission.

The survey map shows an infection at a recently planted site to north east of Oxford.

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs will not disclose the exact location.

Experts say the disease poses a real-and-present danger to the nation's population of 80 million ash trees.
