There has been an outbreak of bird flu on a British duck breeding farm in Nafferton, East Yorkshire.

The department of Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) have moved to reassure people that the risk to public health from the first serious outbreak of bird flu for six years is “very low”.

A 10km restriction zone has been put in place and all poultry on the farm is being culled in an attempt to prevent the spread of the disease.
