Hedgehogs which won't survive hibernation are being given special care at a centre in Cumbria.

The hot summer last year meant that the ground was too hard for them to find food to sustain them through the hibernation period.

The Knoxwood Wildlife Rescue Centre in Wigton has treated more than 100 Hedgehogs which were born late in the season last year.

Plans for their release into the wild are set to go ahead this Spring.
