That infection might enter a house. We have to do everything we can to


prevent that. Devastating news for the farmers involved in this. 6000


turkeys have been lost and his farm in both units have to be cleaned and


it will be closed for some time. This outbreak is just a few yards


from Austen Fen Farm With the same strain of bird

You saw him briefly in Linsey's report, but earlier


I spoke to Andrew Wilson from the National Farmers Union


and asked him what farmers were doing wrong?


There's nothing going wrong lecture. We have our high flock in


Lincolnshire and we are more susceptible to avian flu. It is


worrying is still seems to be worrying is still seems to be


infecting flocks here in county. Birds have been housed and


protection zones are in place and farmers are using disinfectant and


yet there is another case. You cannot stop it, can you? It is a


highly contagious disease. If you look at one gram of infected bird


faeces it is enough to kill 1000 poultry. It is enough to kill 1000


chickens of Turkey. By security is a key message. There's a need to be


taken more seriously by farmers on the counter? I think it has been


taken very seriously and another from farms that I been around that


it has been taken very seriously but it can be on boots and can be


airborne and can be on car tyres so it is something we need to stress


the importance of. The Chief veterinary officer told me earlier


that it is an extremely infectious disease. Is it not inevitable now if


you're honest and level up that there will be more cases? We


certainly hope there will not be more cases. This is not specific to


Lincolnshire and it is in Europe. It is in Yorkshire as well. Your fat to


cases there are four weeks apart. It is inevitable that will be more. We


certainly hope it is not inevitable but it is a highly contagious


disease so farmers they threw everything in their power to make


sure it stops the spread and we are encouraging members and working very


closely with Defra. We're doing this to ensure the disease does stop with


increased by all security measures on farms. -- by all.

weather, from 13 in Aberdeenshire to two, despite the sunshine in Kent. I
