Phoenix calf joy.

PHOENIX who was spared death as a calf in the foot-and-mouth crisis is about to become a mum.

The pure white Charolais is due to give birth at the end of the month.

She made headlines when Tony Blair intervened to save her life after a cull in April 2001.

Phoenix was just a day old when 70 cattle were killed. Slaughterers somehow missed her and she was found lying next to her dead mother.

The PM reversed a Ministry of Agriculture decision to slaughter her.

Owner Philip Board, 45, of Clarence Farm near Axminster, Devon, said: "The calf's birth will be the start of a new herd."
