A man from Norfolk is in the running to be named the best young vet in the country.

Henry Lamb was nominated for the British Veterinary Association award for his work tackling recent bird flu outbreaks and encouraging others to enter the poultry industry.

Mr Lamb graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2018 and started working at Crowshall Veterinary Services near Attleborough.

He has since taken his commercial poultry and gamebird expertise worldwide.

The vet is also a mental health advocate, co-lead of a practice green group and an external lecturer for a Royal Veterinary College poultry course.

Mr Lamb said: “I feel incredibly honoured to have been nominated, let alone be shortlisted as a finalist, especially knowing the outstanding level of commitment and skill so many different members of the profession bring across clinical practice, research sectors, and beyond."

The other finalists are Rebecca Hampson from West Sussex and Camilla Church from Perthshire.

The winner will be selected on November 16 at a ceremony in London.
