An­thrax out­break in Bri­tish cat­tle

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

AN­THRAX has been dis­cov­ered in a cow on a Bri­tish farm – the first case in an an­i­mal since 2006.

The dis­ease was de­tected by of­fi­cials on a farm in West­bury, Wilts, fol­low­ing the death of a cow last week.

The beast has since been in­cin­er­ated and re­stric­tions have been placed on the farm.

Mike Wade, deputy di­rec­tor of Health Pro­tec­tion for PHE South West, added: “We are aware of a con­firmed case of an­thrax dis­ease.

“The risk of in­fec­tion in close hu­man con­tacts of the an­i­mal is very low, and we are in touch with any po­ten­tial con­tacts to of­fer pub­lic health ad­vice.”

An­thrax is a bac­te­rial dis­ease which pri­mar­ily af­fects her­biv­o­rous an­i­mals, al­though all mam­mals are sus­cep­ti­ble to in­fec­tion. GRIP­PING SCENE: 007 and Luc­cia

“It’s a shame she has to keep her clothes on in Spec­tre, be­cause she’s got one of the hottest bod­ies ever.

“Nor­mally, she can’t keep her kit on – so this time it’s a bit of a change for her.”

Spec­tre is out in in cine­mas now.
