ABSTRACT
The article reports on the extension of the bluetongue protection zone announced by the British Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). The extension of the zone now covers Herefordshire, the unitary authority of Telford and Wrekin and the districts in Shropshire previously in the surveillance zone. The extension means that no surveillance zone remains in England, with DEFRA confirming that it will continue to expand the protection zone and roll out vaccination to the free area as vaccine is delivered.
