This is a baby hedgehog receiving a good old fashioned rub-a-dub after he was found wandering in a garden, unable to roll into a ball.

Named Spike, the tiny creature has to be scrubbed clean with a toothbrush because of his delicate skin.

Rescue staff have been treating the youngster to a frothy bath for three weeks after the distressed hedgehog was discovered during daylight.

He was unable to curl up in a defensive ball and concerned locals took him to a vet in Somerset.

He was then transferred to the Secret World Wildlife Rescue Centre, in Highbridge.

Care manager Sarah Cowen, 44, said: 'He was having problems rolling into a ball because the skin on his belly was so sore.
