A Christmas appeal has been issued by the RSPCA for washing up liquid, to keep the animals' accommodation clean this festive period.

Staff at the East Winch wildlife centre, near King's Lynn, use washing up liquid to clean everything from plastic tubs to cubicles for the larger casualties. Washing up liquid used to be donated but this has now stopped.

Administrator Sue Levings said: 'With some of the patients needing cleaning every three hours we use a lot of washing up liquid every day and stocks are running very low.'

The centre is currently caring for 172 hedgehogs, 40 seal pups, 29 swans and other wildlife casualties. donations can be sent to the centre or left in the yellow bins at the front of the building.
