The once common hedgehog is facing extinction if its population continues to decline. That's the warning from one environmental group who say help is urgently needed to save them.

Cumbria wildlife trust say lack of habitat and food are partly to blame, but the floods across Cumbria and Lancashire last year have had a devastating impact.
