A wildlife centre in Tunbridge Wells which cares for injured animals has revealed Hollywood megastar Johnny Depp has become one of its patrons. Folly Wildlife Rescue hit global headlines a few weeks ago when Mr Depp, fresh from his successful defamation trial against his former wife, actress Amber Heard, made a surprise visit.

He had gone to the centre in Fairview Lane, in the Broadwater Forest, with his friend, the English rock guitarist Jeff Beck, who is already a patron at the centre. Mr Depp had joined Mr Beck on some gigs right after the trial and had been delighting fans with impromptu appearances at local bars and restaurants.

A statement from Folly reads: "Following the success of our patron Jeff Beck's UK tour, featuring his good friend Johnny Depp, and Johnny's visit to Folly Wildlife Rescue to see for himself the trust's work with wildlife, we're very pleased to announce that Johnny has done us the great honour of agreeing to become a patron.

"This is wonderful news, as it not only gives a much-deserved boost to our hard-working staff and volunteers but will help bring attention to the increasingly desperate plight of wildlife, that worldwide is under ever-increasing pressure from human activities - and needs all the help it can get."
