The article reports on the release of the last sheep farm from radioactivity-related restrictions in Scotland. It notes that the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has lifted radioactivity monitoring requirements from the last farm that has been affected by fallout from a 1986 nuclear power plant explosion in Chernobyl in Ukraine. It recalls that the movement and sale of sheep have been restricted following the explosion. It discusses the procedures under the mark and release scheme required for sheep to be moved from a restricted area.
