    Foot and mouth back?

    Test results due amid foot-and-mouth scare in Co Antrim

    07:52 Tuesday January 9th 2007


    Preliminary test results are due to today following a foot-and-mouth scare at an abbatoir in the North.
    Lesions that could be a sign of the disease have been found on the feet of a pig at the slaughterhouse in Co Antrim.


    The authorities have responded by imposing restrictions on the movement of animals at the abbatoir and the farm where the pig originated.


    Officials fear the symptoms could be a sign of foot-and-mouth disease, which caused severe restrictions on livestock movement across Ireland and Britain in 2001.

              Ah FFS, it's not fair canceling everything if this thing breaks out. Farming doesn't count for that much economic activity anymore. It ruined so much stuff last time.

                Highly unlikely to be F&M.
