The article explains new zones included in the changes to foot-and-mouth restrictions announced by the British Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). DEFRA secretary Hilary Benn has set up the F&M Restricted Compensation Zone which is not limited to a small part of the south-est of England, but extends across all of Great Britain. Then there is the Browntongue Patronised Zone which covers the whole of Great Britain without exception.
