Following routine surveillance, a further 2 cases of bluetongue in cattle have been identified on a farm near Cantley, Broadland, Norfolk, according to a news release from Ruminant Health & Welfare.

A 10km temporary control zone (TCZ) has been declared around the premises and both animals will be humanely culled to minimise the risk of onward transmission. Movement restrictions apply to cattle, sheep and other ruminants.

This brings the total number of cases to 11 on 6 different premises. There is currently no evidence that bluetongue virus is circulating in Great Britain. Surveillance is ongoing.
