A day-old piglet found on a roadside is being cared for after being blown away during Storm Ciara.
The piglet, who was about a day old, was brought into Taverham Vets on Sunday lunchtime, as high winds battered the region.
The newly-named Priscilla. after the Priscilla Bacon charity, was found by a roadside in Ringland by a member of the public and weighed 1.7kg when she was brought in.
The vets have been unable to trace her owner, but said they had a loving home lined up.
Nurse Hayley Hyam said: "She was really cold and the member of the public didn't want to leave it, she definitely would have died. She's so sweet and adorable.
"She is making a really good recovery. She was lethargic and had no energy. When she first came in she wasn't moving, now she oinks all the time."
Staff have been hand-rearing her after she showed signs of hypothermia and low blood sugar.
To keep her warm, they put her in a T-shirt.
