UK: Sniffer dogs at the border join fight against ASF

Biosecurity Minister Lord Gardiner and the UK Chief Vet visited Heathrow Airport to find out more about the work of Border Force and their highly-trained sniffer dogs to ensure the UK remains free of the animal disease African Swine Fever (ASF).

UK border officials enforce controls at the border on illegal meat by using sniffer dogs and searching freight, passengers and luggage. They will seize and destroy illegally imported meat products. This is because the disease is highly contagious and the virus can survive in pork meat products, even if cooked or frozen.

The operation was focused on passenger arrivals directly from South East Asian countries where African Swine Fever is prevalent.
