Topics: BIRD FLU UK
The H5 strain of avian flu was found at the farm in Suffolk, and a 1km (0.6 mile) exclusion zone set up.
The premises near Eye are now being cleaned and disinfected by the Animal and Plant Health Agency.
Officials from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) have found no evidence of bird flu at nearby farms.
An investigation is continuing to find the source of the outbreak and the risk of further spread.
Public Health England previously said the risk to the public was very low, while the Food Standards Agency said there was no food safety risk as long as poultry products were thoroughly cooked. ■
