Thousands flock to social media to show their support
News Story 1
Chatter box Over 43,000 people have signed an online petition to make hedgehogs a protected species. Oliver Colvile MP, who launched the petition, has also received more than 3,000 paper signatures. But the petition closes in less than a month and it needs 100,000 signatures to be debated in parliament.

Hedgehog numbers have fallen by a third in urban areas and 50 per cent in rural areas since 2000. Mr Colvile said: "Their numbers are in serious decline and it is our responsibility and duty to help reverse that in any way we can."

MS sufferer researches impact of assistance dogs

A Multiple Sclerosis sufferer has begun the UK's first known research into the impact of assistance dogs on the lives of people living with the disease.

Working with four UK assistance dog charities, Grainne O' Connor is currently interviewing the charities' clients about their experiences of having an assistance dog.

Grainne hopes her research will help inform national government social policy - with assistance dogs being recognised as an effective solution to meet some social care needs.
