Ash Dieback found in Warwickhire

It has been confirmed that DEFRA has found Chalara Fraxinea in a batch tested from a nursery in Rugby. Further tests are now being carried out and investigations are underway to find out whether the tree was grown in the UK or imported. It is not yet known how many trees were infected or whether these were planted on site or sold.
