Impact of Schmallenberg virus on British sheep farms during the 2011/2012 lambing season (VR, August 16/23, 2014, vol 175, pp 172; doi: 10.1136/vr.102295). The figures on lamb deaths and deformed lamb deaths given in the fourth sentence of the abstract in the full, online version of this paper were incorrect. The sentence should read: ‘The median number of lambs born (and the median number of deformed lambs) that died within one week of birth per 100 ewes were 18.2 (5.5) on farms where SBV was confirmed,11.3 (2.9) where SBV was suspected and 8.6 (0.0) where SBV was not suspected’. The error is regretted.
