All horse racing cancelled throughout region because of equine flu

All horse racing at Newbury has been cancelled - as equine flu has forced one of Britain's biggest sports into shutdown.

Horses at stables in Lambourn, Kingsclere - and across the region have been swabbed for the contagious disease after vaccinated horses elsewhere in the country have been testing positive.

It means all race fixtures have been called off - until at least Wednesday - including this weekend's Super Saturday event in Newbury.
