A SNOOZING rodent has been catching some Zs at a rescue centre in Somerset.

Sleepy the dormouse has been snuggling down for a sleep at Secret World Wildlife Rescue in East Huntspill after he was found looking weak and tired on a doorstep in Wellington.

The little dormouse is now feasting on honeysuckle flowers, nuts and berries to try and put on a few pounds and get his strength back.

Staff at the centre are hoping he will be fit in time for winter hibernation in a few weeks time.
