13:51 – A national ban on livestock movement is once again in place following the discovery of a fresh foot-and-mouth outbreak in the south of England.

The new case is around 30 miles from the original site of infection with the location of the outbreak, Milton Park Farm, near Egham, Surrey, at its centre.

Control and protection zones have been established, parts of which take in areas of neighbouring counties.

Cattle from the affected herd are already being culled.
