Jul 15, 2018

If this video is anything to go by, British wildlife is struggling to cope with the recent heatwave.Jonty Wilson was driving home earlier this month in the North Pennines when he spotted a hedgehog lying by the side of the road."I stopped the car and backed up to the animal. It hadn’t move and I thought it must be dead. After a closer look, I could see it was still breathing," Wilson said.Realising that the poor animal was merely exhausted from the soaring temperatures, Wilson picked it up and put it in some long grass in a nearby field to recover.
