The UK’s deputy CVO has confirmed H5N8 avian flu in a small flock of chickens and geese at a premises near Diss, south Norfolk.
A 3km protection zone and 10km surveillance zone have been set up around the infected premises to limit the risk of the disease spreading.
The flock is estimated to contain approximately 35 birds. A number have died and the remaining live birds at the premises are being humanely culled.
A full investigation is underway to determine the source of the infection.
Public Health England has advised the risk to public health from the virus is very low and the Food Standards Agency is clear bird flu does not pose a food safety risk for UK consumers.
Keepers are urged to continue to be vigilant and look out for the signs of avian flu in their flocks, informing the APHA should they suspect infection.
