A self-styled guardian angel for injured animals is appealing for volunteers to act as "wildlife taxi drivers".
For more than a decade, 51-year-old Kevin Murphy has run Norfolk Wildlife Rescue, a voluntary one-man-band operation.
But, finding it harder to balance a full-time job with his volunteering, Mr Murphy needs volunteers to take rescued animals on the next stages of their journey - whether it is to wildlife sanctuaries or to receive veterinary treatment.
He said: "They'd need to be able to let me know times they are free then if I have to rescue an animal I can call them up and they can them come to collect it."
He added: "I may also invite them along on rescues with me so they can learn the ropes and what I do, then perhaps they would then also be able to do rescues of their own."

He said: "Having somebody who can help me with all the journeys would make such a difference - you would essentially be a wildlife taxi."
