THESE adorable baby hedgehogs got themselves into a prickly situation – by losing their parents.

The orphans, curled into a ball for protection, are among 400 at Tiggywinkl­es animal charity at

Haddenham, Bucks. Head nurse Sharon Jacobs explained: “A lot of the orphans get separated from their parents after they wander off and get lost. We usually get a large number of hedgehogs during the summer. This year is no exception.”

But thanks to donations, the hospital is able to treat the animals free of charge and release them back to the wild.
