Our neighbour has received a call from DEFRA advising her of outbreaks of Newcastle disease in Belgium. Anyone else had a call or message we haven't

Must admit I thought that Newcastle Disease was something Geordie slappers contracted after a Saturday night on the lash. But certainly I've not received any notification of this.

We can always rely on you Hen-Gen.
The notification was that there had been two outbreaks on commercial units in Eastern Flanders, and they were advising people to be aware and take appropriate bio measures as a precaution. She said it was also on the farming website.
