Dutch Elm disease

It seems a while since dutch elm disease passed through the valley and killed many mature elms. I have noticed recently a large mature elm has lost all its leaves and nearby a young tree has suffered crown die-back. Are we seeing the return of this disease? There are still some good mature specimens trees left, mainly wych elm. Let's hope they aren't at risk.
