On November 16, Defra confirmed a case of avian flu on a duck farm in East Yorkshire, the strain identified as H5N8. Movement controls were introduced and these included any pigs kept on farms with poultry.

Today, Defra has lifted the protection zone restrictions. Surveillance zone controls remain in force within the 10km area, which includes premises within the previous protected zone.

As announced previously, general licences are available for the movement of pigs from farms where poultry is kept.
