It's been confirmed the Highgate wallaby that was captured last week in North London, has died after undergoing an operation.
Dan Hewitt has been at Highgate Cemetery where the wallaby was first caught on camera.
A wallaby that was spotted roaming around North London, before he was caught last week, has died after an operation.
Jean, who was captured in Dartmouth Park, was taken to a RSPCA animal centre in Heathrow where he underwent an operation to treat his broken foot.
He unfortunately could not be revived from the anaesthesia.
The animal charity said: "Surgery always comes with risks, especially for wallabies, but it was necessary in this instance.
"Despite this, we are of course saddened that the wallaby did not survive."
