An avian flu scare in Lancashire has hit the forthcoming Emley Show.
Organisers of the top agricultural show have made the decision to cancel the poultry and egg section.
A spokesperson said: “We are sorry to announce that we have had to cancel the poultry and egg section this year due to an avian flu scare.
“The health and safety of both people and animals are a priority, we are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.”
Show spokesman Tim Hoggarth added: “The secretary of that section advises that it’s better to cancel.
“There is a 30 day incubation period so the decision was taken to cancel.”
A case of avian flu has been confirmed in Lancashire, with restrictions on all poultry farms within 10km of the Preston-based farm.
Public Health England say the risk to the public is low and the Food Standards Agency has said there is no food safety risk for consumers.
Honley Show, which was held in June, was also hit by a disease scare.
The show had to cancel all its horse, pony and donkey sections and classes because of fears of an outbreak of equine strangles, which could prove fatal.
