The first large hedgehog sanctuary in the UK opened on Tuesday in Solihull, West Midlands.

The refuge was created by the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust in response to a big fall in the number of hedgehogs in the UK.

Around 60 years ago, 36 million hedgehogs used to snuffle in UK gardens. There may be less than a million now.
