Hamster survives giant shredder

A hamster has survived almost unscathed after spending several minutes passing through an industrial shredder.
The rodent is thought to have got into a skip of rubbish that was taken to Recyclo recycling plant in Flintshire.
It survived a giant shredder used to destroy waste such as washing machines and was found in a sorting area with no injuries other than a sore foot.

The hamster, named Mike, has been adopted by Liam Bull, 10, whose father Craig works at Recyclo.

Liam said: "I can't believe he's still alive after what happened, but he's doing fine now."

What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.
