    A strain of avian flu identified among a flock of birds in Angus has been classed as "highly pathogenic" in poultry.

    A 3km (2 mile) protection zone and 10km (6 mile) surveillance zone has been placed around the site of the outbreak.

    The Scottish government said on Wednesday that the poultry that tested positive for bird flu had been culled.

    A case of H5N1 avian influenza has been confirmed in poultry and wild birds in north Wales, just days after the UK recorded its first bird flu outbreak of the season.

    The Chief Veterinary Officer for Wales confirmed the presence of the H5N1 strain at a premises in Wrexham county on Monday evening (1 November).

    Temporary Disease Control zones of 3km and 10km have been imposed around the premises to limit the risk of disease spread.
    A veterinary investigation is underway, however, dead wild birds found in the area have tested positive for the virus and are believed to be the source of infection.
