An animal hospital in Leatherhead is asking people to call them before tending to lone baby deer.

Wildlife Aid Foundation says intervening can have “disastrous consequences” for the young animals.

A number of them have been brought to the centre by “well intentioned” people who assume the animal is injured or in distress.

However, once a fawn is touched by a human it can lead to the mother disowning it.
