A third case of Foot and Mouth Disease has been confirmed in cattle on a farm in Great Warley, near Brentwood in Essex. There is an Infected Area already in place around the farm. We are in the process of reviewing whether this needs to be amended in the light of this latest outbreak. An 8km movement restriction area has also been placed around a farm in Heddon-on-the-Wall in Tyne and Wear. This follows reports of highly suspicious disease in a number of pigs on that premise. This case is linked to the first confirmed outbreak in an abattoir in Essex.
