Mum found fox dragging baby son to the back door

The mother of fox attack victim Denny Dolan had gone upstairs when she heard a bang and rushed down to find the animal dragging her baby towards the back door, his aunt has said.

"It was so traumatic," Lorraine Murphy told The Times (£). "The family are devastated. I spoke to my brother at the hospital, but he couldn't even talk. Denny's lovely - he was a perfect baby."

The company which is responsible for maintenance issues with the baby's home has denied press reports it failed to respond to requests from the family to fix a damaged door.

Phoenix Community Housing said repair works were completed last month and said no further requests had been made.
