Nicolas the frog recovers from his broken leg

This little frog is recovering from a broken leg after he hurt himself while trying to break free from netting which was put over a garden pond. The green amphibian, who is called Nicolas, was taken to St Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital, in Bucks, where his right leg was X-rayed. The X-ray confirmed it was broken and the injured leg has now been strapped in blue plaster and bandaged. It will take up to eight weeks to mend. The two-year-old frog was named after French president Nicolas Sarkozy.
