They report that “at present, UK officials at Defra are taking a measured view of the outbreak in France, describing the risk of AI arriving from the European mainland as ‘low but heightened’. They are urging UK bird rearers to check their biosecurity and to be vigilant, reporting any disease concerns immediately”.
