Summary
The fight against the dreaded Foot and Mouth epidemic goes on. Well over 200,000 animals valued in excess of £12,000,000 have already been slaughtered. Efforts to arrest the spread of the disease have resulted in a complete stop of horse racing, and throughout the country widespread precautions are being strictly enforced in a bid to save the nation’s livestock.
