The government has confirmed that measures to limit the spread of avian flu in Eden have been scrapped.
The Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) implemented a 3km monitoring zone which was brought in following cases of the virus being identified in the area.
Under the rules, owners of domestic birds were required to keep them housed to prevent any further spread.
However, an update on the Gov.uk website read: "Following successful completion of disease control activities and surveillance within the zone, the 3km captive bird (monitoring) controlled zone has been revoked for a premises near Appleby-in-Westmorland, Eden, Cumbria."
Bird keepers are urged to keep an eye out for the symptoms of bird flu and report them as a matter of urgency.
