Two photographers have been arrested for for allegedly entering the foot-and-mouth exclusion zone in Surrey reports the BBC.

The pair have been charged under Section 27 of the Animal Health Act and are due to appear at South West Surrey Magistrates’ Court, in Guildford, on Friday 10th August.

Surrey Police said the men were arrested and disinfected on Saturday, and had potentially contaminated equipment seized.

Assistant Chief Constable Mark Rowley said: “No members of the public have tried to get inside contaminated areas but two photographers have been arrested.
