SECRET World is appealing for donations of cat or dog food to feed its growing population of hedgehogs.

The centre, in East Huntspill, already accommodates over 45 of the animals who are too small to hibernate, and is expecting more as the weather gets colder.

The hot and dry conditions over the summer meant many animals found it harder to find food.

This in turn has led to there being less food at the centre, and hedgehogs giving birth later. Now the young hedgehogs won’t have enough time to gain weight for their winter hibernation.
