Government vets are probing an outbreak of bird flu in a poultry farm in Suffolk, following the death of hundreds of turkeys. Reports of an 'unexplained' illness had many experts visiting the farm to investigate.
Confirmation has been received from The Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs about a bird-flu outbreak. This is the second attack of bird flu in a year where an East Anglican poultry farm has been affected.
The April 2006 onslaught led to the slaughter of more than 30,000 birds.
