Britain has confirmed bird flu in a dead swan found in a Scottish village, authorities said Wednesday, but more tests were needed to determine whether it is the deadly H5N1 strain. Scottish authorities confirmed the H5 bird flu subtype in the wild swan, which was found in Cellardyke, more than 450 miles north of London. It was the first H5 case reported in the United Kingdom. Final test results were expected back Thursday from an EU laboratory in Weybridge, England, officials said.
