Tink the hamster who 'came back to life' after she was buried

Tink the hamster has come back from the dead after being buried alive in the garden during the coldest Easter on record. Lisa Kilbourne-Smith and boyfriend James Davis were looking after the tiny pet for friends when they found her lying lifeless in her cage. They thought she had died and wrapped her little body in kitchen roll, dug a grave a foot-deep in their flower bed and gently laid her to rest. The tearful pair then phoned Tink's owners Nicki Gamble and Jamie Wynn to break the sad news that the two and a half year-old had passed away.
