The latest situation on avian influenza (bird flu) in the UK and advice on how to reduce the risks.

Avian influenza (bird flu) is a disease of birds. The H5N8 strain of the disease has been found in wild and farmed birds in the UK. A number of measures are in place to reduce the risk of the disease spreading.

Public Health England advises that the risk to public health is very low and the Food Standards Agency has said there is no food safety risk for UK consumers.

Where avian influenza has been confirmed, we put restrictions in place to limit the spread of disease, and investigate the source of the infection. Comprehensive information is available from the DEFRA website.

 

Specific information and guidelines for 'back garden'/domestic flock owners can be found here.
