Corrie star Helen Worth's lion rescue appeal

The cages are horrendous. They spend their lives in solitary confinement.

An appeal for the rescue of Bulgaria's last two circus lions was launched by the Born Free Foundation in a bid to secure their relocation to the international wildlife charity's sanctuary at Shamwari, in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.

Jora and Black are two seven-year-old lions known to be brothers. These fine-featured animals are caged in a metal beast wagon in the back yard of an ex-circus trainer's remote mountain lodge near the capital, Sofia.

Helen Worth joined Born Free as a Patron at our 15th Anniversary and has been passionately working on campaigns ever since.

British nurse honoured for Ebola patient work

I was shocked, surprised and a little bit embarrassed. Many of the people who worked with me faced far more dangerous circumstances. For me, the biggest pressure was psychological stress of the situation.

– Alison McCourt

A British Army nurse who ran an Ebola clinic in Sierra Leone has been awarded an OBE for her contribution to fighting the deadly disease.

Alison McCourt and her team risked their lives to treat highly infectious patients.

She said: 'I'm delighted for my whole team. I couldn't have wished for better colleagues to work with. When a commanding officer gets an award, it's not just for them as an individual. We couldn't have achieved what we did without every single one of them.'
