    BBC Live reporter

    A wildlife charity saw a large increase in casualties last year.

    East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service saw a 42% rise in animal casualties in 2016 - up 854 casualties on the previous year.

    The charity treated 2,884 casualties in 2016, compared to 2,030 in 2015.

    Deer rescue

    The charity saw a 38% increase in wild mammals and 44% increase in wild birds. Hedgehogs were the most common mammal rescued (473) and the feral pigeon the most common bird species (330).

    The single most common confirmed reason for wildlife casualties being admitted into care remains as a result of cats - 15% of casualties in 2016.  

    One of the biggest increases was in entanglements, that's birds caught in netting on buildings, deer entangled in electric rope or swans entangled in fishing line.
