An animal sanctuary has said it can't always keep up with the high number of calls for help it receives every day.

The staff at Nuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary say they are receiving between 40 and 50 calls a day.

Geoff Grewcock, founder of the Nuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary, said:

It is unbelievable how busy we are.

We are getting about 40 or 50 calls a day, we can’t keep up with them all some days.

Now, 16 years after the sanctuary was first founded, Geoff and his team have helped to care for 38,200 animals and this figure rises on a daily basis.

As well as responding to calls from residents, Geoff also helps the police, fire and rescue and Network Rail with any animal related incidents.
