A St Albans girl held a cake sale to raise money for sick hedgehogs.

Ten-year-old Liffey Lewis was inspired to host the event after she rescued a hedgehog with a broken leg from her back garden and took it to London Colney Hedgehog Rescue.

The mother hedgehog had five babies which had to go with her as they were too young to look after themselves and were still suckling. 

The cake sale on Friday August 6 was held at her grandparents' garden in Marshalswick.

Liffey said: "We also sold homemade jams, chutneys, knitted goods, soaps, bathbombs and beeswax candles.
