Tests in bird flu scare.

TESTS were continuing today on a dead duck which sparked a bird flu scare in Birmingham.

The bird was found yesterday near Edgbaston Reservoir and taken for analysis by laboratory experts from the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Results are not expected until early next week but test findings on five other birds found in other parts of the UK were expected later today.

A deluge of bird carcasses are being reported by members of the public.
