    Default Piglet found in lorry is rehomed

    'Andrex' has now recovered from his ordeal and tripled in weight

    A piglet which was rescued by RSPCA staff after being discovered in a lorry-load of toilet paper has been found a new home.

    The two week old animal was found among a delivery at Tesco in Ilkeston, Derbyshire, in November.
    The piglet nicknamed "Andrex" spent the last six weeks recovering at a shelter and has now been rehomed at Ferry Farm children's park near Southwell, Notts.
    It is thought the animal was put on the lorry as a deliberate prank.
    'Good start'
    Andrex suffered cuts and bruising to his snout during the incident but has now recovered.
    Ella Herring deputy manager for the Radcliffe-on-Trent animal shelter said: "The owners of Ferry Farm have the expertise and facilities to look after Andrex's welfare long-term.
    "It's great that he can be visited by people, especially children who have taken such an interest in his well being.
    "His progress has been fantastic, he has more than tripled in weight and his new home is such a good start to the New Year." The shelter has now begun an appeal to raise 3,000 for a new stable to house unwanted farm animals.
