A second case of the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu has been found in turkeys at a farm near last week's initial outbreak, the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs confirmed today.
About 6,000 birds were slaughtered after last week's initial outbreak in Redgrave
All 9,000 turkeys have already been slaughtered at the new infected premises, Hill Meadow Farm, on the Norfolk-Suffolk border. The new farm is operated by the same company that runs Redgrave Park Farm, where the first bird flu case was discovered last week.;jsessionid=FOAREATAHMRZPQFIQMGSFGGAVCBQWIV0?xml=/news/2007/11/19/nbird119.xml
