    Who – hedgehogs

    What – It is feared that many hedgehogs have died in the floods. Other hedgehogs have come out of hibernation early because the temperature has been warm for the time of year and there hasn’t been enough food for them to eat.

    Where – nationwide

    When – Spring 2014

    Why – global warming is causing the extreme weather.

    People in the UK are shocked because they have saw the northern lights.

    English,Welsh,Scottish and Irish people have seen the northern lights in their countries over the last week which is very unusual.

    The display happens because solar wind is ejected from the sun. This time the winds have been much stronger than usual so the lights have come as far south as the UK.

    Samir Nasri claims he is finally playing with a smile in a Manchester City shirt.
    And if the enigmatic French ace is still wearing that fat grin in a couple of weeks after his teams next three games, there is every chance he will be on course for a championship medal.

    Two goals from Nasri and a fantastic opener from Alvaro Negredo ensured City kept their magnificent home form.
    But with four defeats away from home already, it’s the upcoming trips to West Brom and Southampton plus the home clash with Nasri’s old Arsenal team-mates on Saturday that will decide City’s fate.
