A poultry flock in East Anglia has contracted the livestock form of MRSA.

Government vets are not revealing where the affected farm is and say there are no known cases of people developing MRSA from eating infected meat.

Once the birds have been slaughtered the poultry sheds will be thoroughly disinfected.
