A lonely pig abandoned in a field has plucked at the heart-strings of residents of a small Kent community who have given it food and shelter.

Locals in Shorncliffe, near Folkestone, Kent, took pity on the female pig they have named Porrick after she was left behind by her owner around four months ago.

Seeing the animal on her own in an overgrown field on Horn Street, residents built a makeshift shelter for her from tin, wood and tarpaulin beneath an ash tree.
