A baby bat smaller than a two pound coin has being been nursed back to health after falling down a chimney.

The tiny bat is believed to be a young pipistrelle, a diminutive species which sees fully-grown adults reach around just five grams (0.17oz) in body weight. 

It was brought into the Wildlife Aid Foundation centre in Surrey after a homeowner discovered it in their fireplace.
