Foot and Mouth Disease Still a Problem in Europe

They are killing cattle in Europe that have foot and mouth disease.

The cattle were tested for the disease after they showed symptoms following three recent outbreaks in the Egham area just a few miles away.

Defra said about 40 cows had tested positive and were slaughtered. The farm at Old Windsor is within the 3km protection zone set up after the latest cases emerged.

The latest outbreak brings the total of confirmed cases of foot and mouth in Surrey to six since the first case at the beginning of August.
