Farmers and livestock owners can now call the RSPCA farm animal welfare hotline on: 0870 753 8333.

The service is already up and running and is available 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week for the duration of the foot and mouth crisis.

Calls will be handled by a dedicated team and if necessary passed onto frontline RSPCA staff to assess what help is needed.

"The current movement ban is having a massive impact on farm animals. We want to do what we can to help them, and hope this new hotline will help farmers manage this latest blow," said Superintendent Tim Wass, the RSPCA's national emergency response co-ordinator.
