A HEDGEHOG rescue shelter has found itself inundated with unwell or injured animals as the winter months set in.

Viv Smith, who runs Malvern Hedgehog Rescue at her home in Matthias Close, currently has 35 hedgehogs in her care.

With more being brought in by the day and others dying because of the cold, she says people should be on the lookout for the creatures.

Anyone who finds a hedgehog that seems in distress should keep it warm and in a high-sided box and call Mrs Smith on 07780 834411.

We had a monster one on our lawn. It was about the size of a small family car. Never seen a live one in the wild before.
