Lonely pig needs someone to love it

by David Johns (@davidjohns_itv)

She's a bit fat, lives alone in a field and is relying on donations of food from kindly neighbours. Porrick the pig was abandoned when her owner took all his other porkers away except for her. She needs a new home - but who would be willing to take on the friendly pot-bellied beast?

David Johns has been to meet her, speaking to the man who built her shelter, Lance Cruse.

Two kittens have been found dumped next to recycling bins at a supermarket.

A member of the public spotted the pair in a cat carrier at Tesco in Hailsham in East Sussex. They were distressed and covered in faeces and taken to Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare.

They are thought to be 8-9 weeks old.

Staff at Raystede have named them Bubble and Squeak.

Head of Cattery, Jane Moore said: "They are such lovely kittens, I just cannot understand how anyone could leave them like this. They are both very friendly and have obviously been socialised well."

Anyone interested in re-homing the kittens or making a donation should call 01825 840252 or visit www.raystede.org
