RSPB issue avian flu warning to tourists

Holidaymakers are being warned to stay away from sick or dead birds washed up on the UK's beaches as avian flu continues to ravage wild populations.

Thousands of infected seabirds have been found along the UK coastline as the largest outbreak of the normally-seasonal virus continues into summer.

The RSPB has warned the spread among seabird populations is a "crisis that could become a catastrophe".

The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) says the risk to humans is 'very low'.
