Hedgehog with no prickles is treated to daily massages to help combat his dry skin

Nelson the hedgehog is unusual in the fact that he is more or less spineless, with only a few on the lower half of his body.

He is a resident at Foxy Lodge Wildlife Rescue in Hemsby, Norfolk, where each day a volunteer gives him a massage with lotion to help combat his dry skin.

Nelson is just one of the needy animals at the rescue centre which also homes a blind fox, deer and kittens. It is run by Tonia and John Garner.

They met 10 years ago and soon discovered they shared the same dream - to set up a wildlife sanctuary. Since then, they have rescued and rehabilitated hundreds of animals and birds each year, and expect the figure for 2016 alone to exceed 1,000.
