Commenting, Dr Neil Hudson MP said:
"It is 20 years ago that Foot and Mouth hit Cumbria and the UK incredibly hard. An epidemic that put the country on a war footing. It was my veterinary experiences in the frontline during that crisis that spurred me into wanting to go into politics and public life. I spoke about Foot and Mouth in my maiden speech this time last year and this week I have spoken about Foot and Mouth in media articles about this disease that devastated so many farms and livelihoods and claimed so many animal lives."
