Four new cases of foot and mouth disease have been found in the UK, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 16. The new cases have been found in Anglesey, County Durham, Lancashire and Northampton, said the government's chief veterinary officer Jim Scudamore. The emergence of more outbreaks of foot and mouth disease comes as the UK Prime Minister Tony Blair holds a full ministerial crisis meeting today to discuss the outbreak. The meeting will look at a range of measures to curb any further spread of the disease as well as discussing compensation for farmers whose livestock has been slaughtered and incinerated.
