We have also dealt with over 40 other calls which have either been local advisory calls or where people have kindly agreed to deliver casualties to our centre due to how busy we have been today - which has been a great help.

There have also been numerous calls from Ashford, London, Margate, St Leonards, Brighton, Hove, Portslade, Hurstpierpoint, Peacehaven, Ditchling, Southwick, Hangleton which we have either given advice or passed on the details to more local groups - a big thank you to the lovey ladys from Brighton & Hove Wildlife Advice & Rescue Service who have worked tirelessly today helping casualties in the Brighton & Hove area.

Thank you to all our amazing staff and volunteers who have worked so hard in this heat today trying their best to help as many people and wild animals as possible.
