Rabbit gets swimming lessons

A 7kg 'continental giant' rabbit called Heidi has been getting swimming lessons - in the hope it'll help cure her arthritis. Owner Amanda Williams, from Christchurch, wraps a hair band which matches Heidi's life jacket around her ears to stop water getting in them.

The owner of the hydrotherapy pool in Hampshire says the treatment is more commonly given to dogs and horses - but it's the first time she's worked with a rabbit.
