Former battery hens have been given a new lease of life thanks to a rescue farm in Ince.

Lucky Hens Rescue was founded by Alison Thorpe in 2010 and since then has been offering a new home for ex-battery or caged birds, some of hom have never seen sunlight or tasted fresh air.

Our own Paul Crone went to meet Alison and her hen party.
