A baby hare is recovering well at Dublin airport after staff pulled her from a deep snow drift during Storm Emma.

Airport police uncovered the freezing leveret yesterday afternoon and brought her inside to safety.

Staff heated her up and made sure she had enough food and water.

Named Emma - after Storm Emma - the baby hare's family was found soon afterwards and also taken in out of the cold.

The rescue, which was filmed on a mobile phone and posted by Dublin Airport on their Twitter feed, has been viewed nearly 150,000 times in 20 hours.

Despite their harrowing experience, the animals are said to be recovering well, and will be released back into the wild when they are back to full health and the cold weather has cleared up.

The Government is hoping the country will be back to normal by tomorrow, after it was effectively brought to a standstill by the heavy snow and ice.

Met Éireann has warned that widespread lying snow and ice continuing to lead to hazardous conditions.
