Is this the country's loneliest rabbit? RSPCA Suffolk seeks home for Poppy after 927 days in care

The RSPCA is seeking a home for what could be the country's loneliest rabbit.

Heartbroken Poppy has been in RSPCA care for 927 days, having originally entered care with her sister Lilly.

But after Lilly died from a chronic infection Poppy has been alone.

Now the bereaved bunny's only pal is a rabbit teddy bear, which she grooms and treats like her companion, say RSPCA officers.

Gender-specific toilets to be required in non-residential buildings in England

New restaurants, offices, schools and hospitals in England will be required to have separate male and female toilets, in a move ministers say will combat growing concerns about “privacy and dignity” in gender-neutral facilities.

The law will mean newly built non-residential buildings require separate facilities, and cannot solely have “universal” lavatories.
