Thanks for that ID ! The news item was taken from local press reports.

A more detailed report on Chester First added "Staff at Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre, which stranded animals in the county are usually taken to, were put on standby but RSPCA officers decided to return the fawn to the wild.

An RSPCA spokesman said the baby and its mother would most likely find each other quickly.

“The animal had a superficial injury but it was decided the best thing would be to release it back into the wild,” she said. “It should find its way back. It can be quite common for baby animals to need rescuing as they get into trouble while finding their bearings.”

I haven't been able to find any more information.
