A video of a badger and a hedgehog sharing a moonlit dinner shot by former Portslade councillor Bob Carden has become a huge internet hit.

The video, which Mr Carden shot on 11 August, was posted on the BBC Springwatch Facebook page, and has now been viewed by almost 80,000 people.

In it, the pair chow down on a cocktail of dog biscuit, peanuts, hoola hoops and peanut butter sandwiches, plus Bob’s leftovers.

You can hear him saying: “Well that’s amazing, a badger and a hedgehog feeding side by side. It’s certainly a first for me.

They must have been feeding together for years, it’s not the first time, because I’m sure that little creature would have been off.”
