Foot and Mouth, Where is the updated HSE report?

Firstly I am pleased to see that the foot and mouth outbreak appears to be limited, I would not be surprised to hear of a few more scares, but would be shocked if there was another outbreak.

During the initial outbreak suspicion fell on the laboratories at Pirbright, there was a flurry of activity, an initial HSE report and spinning blaming it all on Merial.

Two things are relevant here. Firstly the HSE report clearly identified the strain as being from the Pirbright. The second is that the initial report promised further tests to say whether the sub strain was from the Animal Health Institute or Merial.

Where is it?

For more on foot and mouth, see here, and for the initial HSE report see here.

Anonymous, Yes quite possibly. Let us see if the MSM take it up.
