Five new outbreaks of bluetongue disease have been reported in France.

The French agriculture ministry said that the incidence occurred in cattle on farms in Chambon sur Voueze, in Creuse, Chaulieu in Manche, Monestier in Allier, Lempdes in Puy-de-Dôme and Combourg in Ille-et-Vilaine.

Just one animal was discovered to have the disease on each farm, but the outbreak has threatened a total of 510 cattle on the farms.

The authorities have established control measures including movement controls and screening of animals.
