A popular Suffolk hotel and restaurant has now been reunited with its iconic mascot - a giant and prized hedgehog.
The Hog Hotel on London Road, Pakefield - said that the hedgehog which has 2500 handmade spikes, was stolen on Sunday evening (14th February).
However, following a plea on social media - the spiny mammal has been found and returned home.
Local businessman Johnny Spillings found the giant hedgehog 'battered and bruised' in a ditch in Gisleham, on his way to work this morning (17th February).
Hotel owner, Nathan Jones said: ‘a huge and enormous thank you to everyone that shared, liked and commented on the post' and added that: true community spirit had been shown.'
It was not known how long the hedgehog (named Dave) had been left in the ditch - but the perhaps the power of social media, really did make him too hot to handle.
