England: Council takes action
Following the death of a duck from H5N1 in Lyon, France, an English council has started issuing advice on H5N1. Southend Council has provided a helpline along with safety advice to people and businesses in the Southend area. Meanwhile in East Anglia, where most of the British poultry industry is based and many councillors have some sort of link with poultry, the councils have been impressively inactive.
