A red squirrel at a conservation centre in Norfolk has stunned wardens by producing her 48th kitten in six years, despite having lost her first partner.

Wardens feared the squirrel, know as Tortoiseshell, would never breed again when her partner died two years ago.

Chrissie Kelley from EARSG said she is a "wonder-mum" doing a "fantastic job".

Okay I've honestly never heard of a baby squirrel being called a kitten. I was wondering what kind of inter-species thing I was going to read about. Thankfully it was just my ignorance. Phew!
