“It is very unusual that a fox will do something like this. He was a young fox and I think he was most likely frightened by the hustle and bustle of the High Street so darted into the store for shelter.

“I think all the bright lights would’ve confused him and he just curled up at the back to try to find safety.

“As soon as I got there I was able to catch him and I took him to a nearby rescue centre for care. “Thankfully he seemed pretty well so he should be returned to the wild once he is back up to full strength.”
