Chris Keen and Jude Wylds were on their regular patrol of the streets for Welwyn Hatfield Council when they found the furry creatures.

They had been left in a cage on the side of Holwell Hyde Lane with no owner nearby.

A spokesperson for the council has confirmed that the guinea pigs are in good health and will be rehomed.

She added: “We’re welcoming any suggestions for names!”
