    The foot-and-mouth outbreak in Surrey could effectively be over by the end of next week if no new cases emerge, a leading microbiologist has said.

    Professor Hugh Pennington said if the disease had not spread to other animals by then it was "highly unlikely" there would be any further outbreaks.
    A temporary control zone around a farm near Dorking was lifted on Saturday after negative test results. Officials are urging farmers to remain vigilant in looking for the disease.

    I hope they manage to get rid of it fast and find out where it started off from.
