Locals in Stoke Newington couldn't believe their eyes when a fox joined them in the shopping aisles earlier this week.

"I know foxes are getting tamer," said local resident Aoife Archer, "but this is ridiculous!

"I only popped in for some bin bags and a Kinder Bueno.

"The last thing I expected to see was a poor mangy looking fox."

The assistant in the shop was quick to act when the animal nonchalantly walked into shop, grabbing a broom and promptly showing the fox the door.

Some locals have become endeared to the creature and have even picked a name for him - Cedric.
