We introduced a ﬁve minute foot and mouth bulletin that ran seven times a day at the peak of the outbreak. (Graham, 2001: 5) The extract and quotation above convey something of the nature, scale and devastation of the 2001 FMD disaster in Cumbria and how it was experienced by Cumbrian rural communities, households and individuals. How did individuals and groups endure daily disruption and what was for many profound loss, and for many more, the fear of loss? For most there was an altered everyday reality that has left a lasting memory.
And there were dead bodies everywhere, there were twelve report cases that farmers had phoned in saying, we think we’ve got foot and mouth, we’d like a vet to see it, and there weren’t vets to go and see them. Confusion reigned as farming unions sought clariﬁcation of the meaning of ‘all animals’ from the Government and it was not until a local television interview that evening with Brown, that the situation was clariﬁed. ‘All animals’ included sheep and pigs, not cattle. It became clear fairly quickly that the policy of ‘stamping out’ was not working, and on the basis of some of the epidemiological computer models produced by the FMD Science Group, Professor David King, the Government’s Chief Scientiﬁc Advisor, advised the Government on 23rd March to modify the disease control policies and to introduce what became known as the ‘24/48 hours contiguous culling policy’.
It wasn’t a case of oh can we do that, it was just do it, think about it later. You know, this is what we need, get on with it. I mean, once they brought the army in, all right they didn’t stop the Foot & Mouth right away, but I mean they did start to get shot of the animals and what have you and clean up the farms and there was none of this lying a week before they were moved or anything like that, they were shot and moved the same day. The Cumbria Inquiry (2002:30) also reports that the Army contingent ‘became an integral part of the disease control operations…During the Inquiry we were told on numerous occasions that there had been signiﬁcant improvements in the management of disease outbreaks and in local relationships as the epidemic progressed.
