Bird flu has been found at a second pheasant farm in Lancashire,

:00:11.:00:13.

according to the Department for Environment, Food

:00:14.:00:15.

The UK's chief veterinary officer said avian flu has been discovered

:00:16.:00:19.

at a farm with 1,000 birds in Wyre, which has what's described

:00:20.:00:22.

as a business link to nearby farm Hy-Fly Game Hatcheries Limited

:00:23.:00:24.

in Preesall, where the infection was confirmed on Tuesday.

:00:25.:00:28.

Birds at the site will now be culled and a 3km protection zone has been

:00:29.:00:32.

Public Health England said the risk to humans was "very low".

:00:33.:00:38.

A minute's applause was held at the Bolton Wanderers game

:00:39.:00:41.

against Charlton today in memory of Phyllis Robb,

:00:42.:00:43.

one of the best-known survivors of the 1946 Burnden Park tragedy,

:00:44.:00:48.

who died last week at the age of 102.

:00:49.:00:50.

The famous picture showed Phyllis being lifted

:00:51.:00:53.

33 people died at the FA Cup game when 85,000 fans showed up,

:00:54.:01:00.

many more than expected, and barriers gave way,

:01:01.:01:02.

She remained a Bolton fan her whole life.

:01:03.:01:07.

I feel inspired by her, proud, and I'll be quite emotional

:01:08.:01:11.

because she was very, very close to us.

:01:12.:01:14.

She didn't have any children, so me and my

:01:15.:01:17.

two brothers were her family, and she treated us like her own.

:01:18.:01:22.

You can tell, you can hear it in my voice now

:01:23.:01:25.

that I do get quite emotional about her,

:01:26.:01:27.

because she was just such a wonderful, wonderful lady.

:01:28.:01:30.

Hopefully she'll be there watching the match from above.

:01:31.:01:36.

Emotions often run high in an FA Cup clash,

:01:37.:01:38.

but today, as Blackburn beat Blackpool to progress to the fifth

:01:39.:01:41.

round, there was at much drama off the pitch as there was on it.

:01:42.:01:44.

Supporters from both teams were out in protest against their clubs'

:01:45.:01:46.

respective owners at Ewood Park, as Juliet Phillips reports.

:01:47.:01:51.

Football, united, we'll never be defeated!

:01:52.:01:55.

Fans from opposing teams come together with a common goal.

:01:56.:01:59.

These Blackburn and Blackpool supporters won't be cheering

:02:00.:02:02.

inside Ewood Park today, but chanting outside it instead.

:02:03.:02:05.

They are boycotting the game due to concerns over

:02:06.:02:07.

Venky's at Blackburn and Oyston at Blackpool.

:02:08.:02:12.

We are here because we want to send a collective message to our owners

:02:13.:02:15.

and to the football authorities that football without

:02:16.:02:18.

The fans of Blackpool and Blackburn are absolutely fed up

:02:19.:02:24.

with the way our owners have treated our football clubs,

:02:25.:02:27.

using them as private businesses rather than the community assets

:02:28.:02:31.

It is heart-wrenching to stay away from the football club.

:02:32.:02:36.

It's a long time since I've missed a football match,

:02:37.:02:38.

and today I will stay away to support my club and my team,

:02:39.:02:41.

but I will not knock anybody who feels that they have to go

:02:42.:02:44.

into the ground and support the team.

:02:45.:02:46.

The only guilty party are the owners of Blackburn Rovers and Blackpool.

:02:47.:02:49.

There are at least 100 protesters from Blackpool and Blackburn

:02:50.:02:51.

But the question is, what do the fans going to the match think?

:02:52.:02:58.

Nobody's listening, it's as simple as that.

:02:59.:02:59.

You ought to get in there and support your team.

:03:00.:03:05.

I can understand people wanting to protest because of what's

:03:06.:03:07.

going on being diabolical, but is it going to make any

:03:08.:03:10.

difference when the owners are never here to see it?

:03:11.:03:12.

We want Venky's out! We want Venky's out!

:03:13.:03:14.

The protesters remained outside as the game began.

:03:15.:03:17.

Their dispute will likely continue long after today's final whistle.

:03:18.:03:22.

Juliet Phillips, BBC North West Tonight, Blackburn.

:03:23.:03:26.

Elsewhere, in the FA Cup fourth round today,

:03:27.:03:28.

Championship side Wolves stunned Liverpool, who crashed

:03:29.:03:31.

out of their second cup competition in a week.

:03:32.:03:34.

Despite this late goal from Divock Origi, Jurgen Klopp's

:03:35.:03:39.

side failed to find an equaliser and suffered their third home defeat

:03:40.:03:43.

in a week including Wednesday's loss to Southampton in the EFL Cup.

:03:44.:03:47.

As we mentioned, Blackburn progress to the fifth

:03:48.:03:49.

So do Burnley, who beat Bristol 2-0, and Man City who beat

:03:50.:03:55.

It's the end of the road though for Accrington,

:03:56.:03:59.

who lost 1-0 to Middlesborough, and for Rochdale, who lost

:04:00.:04:02.

Man United take on Wigan tomorrow to round off this

:04:03.:04:05.

Now let's take a look at the weather.

:04:06.:04:10.

Well, we've had a real mixed bag this weekend,

:04:11.:04:13.

Quite a messy number of fronts coming towards us,

:04:14.:04:17.

So, as we have a look at the detail overnight tonight,

:04:18.:04:21.

we'll continue to see those showers moving their way across the region,

:04:22.:04:24.

with perhaps a few wintry elements over the higher ground,

:04:25.:04:26.

and lows night of around one Celsius.

:04:27.:04:29.

So, there's a possibility for patches of ice and some

:04:30.:04:31.

Then, tomorrow, we'll continue to see those showers clearing,

:04:32.:04:38.

and then some brighter spells for a time, before more rain

:04:39.:04:41.

starts coming in tomorrow evening and tomorrow night.

:04:42.:04:44.

turning milder over the next few days.

:04:45.:05:03.

Tomorrow morning the best of the weekend weather. That's it for now.

:05:04.:05:07.
