In 2001 FMD in the UK was not a new phenomenon. 10 Between 1922 and 1967 there were four major FMD epidemics with ensuing government reports in 1922, 1924, 1954 and 1967/8. The Gowers Committee of 1954 (a Committee of Inquiry Report to the then Ministry of Agriculture) reported that there had been no single year between 1929 and 1953 in which the UK was completely free of FMD. The outbreaks of FMD during the late 19th century gave early indicators of the importance of economic markets and animal movements for the spread of FMD.

It was unutterably brutal. (Jon Snow, Forward, Cumbria’s Story, The Cumberland News 2002:3) The journalist Jon Snow’s ‘mad March weekend’ recollects his 2001 visit to Cumbria to compile a special FMD report for Channel Four News. This was some five weeks after the confirmed FMD case at Heddon-on-the-Wall, Northumberland, 30 miles from the Cumbrian border. Within those five weeks, an outbreak at a sheep dealer’s farm in Devon had been linked to the Heddon case via Longtown auction mart in Cumbria, one of the biggest marts in the country.

In autumn 2007 there was a further outbreak of FMD in Surrey, South East England. Most commentators seem to agree that this episode was managed more effectively than 2001. 14 ‘That this outbreak should never have happened’ is a reference to the source of the 2007 outbreak, which was almost certainly the nearby laboratory and manufacturing facilities at Pirbright. The irony is that the two main organizations based here are both heavily involved in FMD research and prevention. The Institute of Animal Health (IAH, commonly referred to as the Pirbright Institute) is the only United Kingdom facility licenced by Government to hold and work with live foot and mouth disease virus and acts as the National and World FMD Reference Centre; a role which includes international monitoring of FMD outbreaks.
