Livestock producers are being urged to vaccinate every animal against bluetongue disease in the run-up to the grazing season.

Tens of thousands of cattle and sheep will soon be moved out to pastures around the area, including Beverley Westwood.

And the onset of warmer weather increases the risk of infection as the midges that carry the disease become more active.
