Bird flu 'may have hit second farm'

The bird flu crisis escalated today as vets said the virus may have spread to a second farm a few kilometres from the initial outbreak.
Turkeys at Grove Farm near Botesdale in Suffolk were being slaughtered on suspicion of having the disease.
The site is within a 3km protection zone established around Redgrave Park Farm where the deadly H5N1 virus was first discovered on Sunday.
