Help a hedgehog

Caddington Hedgehog rescue centre in Old Leake is asking residents to do their bit to help the creatures.

Hedgehog Awareness week begins on Sunday, and residents can help by making their garden more ‘hog-friendly’.

One of the hedgehogs in care at the centre fell into an uncovered drain and wore his claws down to the flesh trying to get out. These became infected and required medical treatment.
