How you can create a hedgehog haven

Community groups are coming together to help save hedgehogs in their town – and they want your help.
Greening Wymondham has launched an initiative to help the mammals, with numbers declining rapidly across the UK.
Nicola Maunders is leading the project with town councillor Annette James, and they are planning events to "get the word out that these wonderful creatures need our help".
Mrs Maunders said: "Something as simple as leaving out a shallow dish of water every night makes a big difference to their survival.
"Other things you can do include cutting a hole in a fence panel to create a hedgehog highway that means they can roam freely – they ideally need around eight linked gardens as they can wander up to one mile a night – and making a feeding station."
