The Balkans group of countries was considered to be the most probable group within Europe to have a primary outbreak of FMD and also most likely to have the highest number of primary outbreaks. Turkey was considered to be the country outside Europe which was most likely to be the source of an outbreak within Europe as a whole, and the illegal importation of livestock was considered to be the most probable route of introduction of FMD into Europe. Results specific to the Islands group of countries, which included the UK and Ireland, suggested that this group was expected to have a mean of one primary outbreak of FMD in the five years from September 2000, and that the importation of foodstuffs by people entering those countries from Turkey was the most likely source of an outbreak (Anderson Inquiry, 2002).

Just blistered and all…They would stand there with their tongues out, big blisters on them, blisters on their lips, and er round, you know where the hoof joins the fleshy part of the foot , all round there. Oh they were in absolute agony were them cows, absolute agony [at one case] they’d had it a while, they’d literally start rotting.
