Rabies: Vets warn of threat to UK as quarantine rules change

Vets are warning that the rabies threat to the UK has increased following changes to quarantine rules.

Under the changes, animals from the EU and approved non-EU countries like the US and Australia no longer need a blood test, before they can enter the UK.

The government says the risk of rabies coming to the UK is very low.
