Wild bird 'may be behind bird flu outbreak'

Scientists suspect an outbreak of bird flu at a Yorkshire duck farm may have been brought by a wild bird from the continent.

Tests are ongoing to trace the source of the outbreak and to find out the particular strain of H5 to affect the farm in Nafferton.

Some nearby farmers are keeping a close eye on their own birds following the outbreak.
