Sheep farmers are at crisis point. They say recent bad weather, low supermarket prices and now the return of the deadly Schmallenberg virus are threatening to put them out of business.
Schmallenberg causes birth defects in lambs. And while it was only discovered a year ago, farmers say the impact has been huge - 91 cases have been confirmed across Dorset and Somerset so far this year.
One farmer says if his sheep contract the virus his livelihood will be destroyed.
