I was seconded to MAFF during the recent FMD outbreak and was
involved with burn / bury pits and mass disposal sites. After
attending a recent seminar on the post FMD process can report
that DEFRA stated that they are preparing the data for release
sometime later this year. Of course we will await this with baited
breath, and it does appear that the army were not as precise in
identifying the location of the pits as DEFRA had hoped !
Just to qualify, this information should be the case for
Herefordshire, Shropshire and Worcestershire, and I would hope is
true for the other affected Counties.
