Spreading Fear

The don't panic line is not exciting enough for the Guardian, which is getting in a bit of a twist. Its headline

Kent farm isolated as foot and mouth fears spread

suggests that something is spreading, i.e. fears about the disease, while the intro has it that the fear is that the disease has spread.
Livestock at a farm in Kent were today tested for foot and mouth amid fears the disease had spread from an initial, apparently controlled outbreak in Surrey.
