Britain said on January 14, 2002 it had eradicated a prolonged
foot-and-mouth outbreak and would declare its last 'at risk' region
free of the livestock disease at midnight, ending a devastating chapter

farm in Lockerbie is lifted into the air as Britain's foot-and-mouth
outbreak reaches Scotland, in this file photo March 3, 2001.
