DEFRA has issued the statement below on the issue:
27,000 birds will be culled at the farm and a 1km restriction zone is in place around the farm to limit the risk of disease spreading further.
Public Health England has confirmed that the risk to public health is very low and the Food Standards Agency has said that bird flu does not pose a food safety risk for UK consumers.
In addition, all of our egg products are cooked and pasteurised to levels exceeding legal requirements.
