Check out this beautiful albino squirrel which has been spotted in Bromley.

It was photographed by Facebook user Sevcan Ankay Vadeoglu who saw it in her garden.

White, or albino squirrels, are born with little or no pigmentation in their fur, skin or eyes, resulting in white fur and pink eyes.

Wildlife experts say the chances of a squirrel being born albino are one in 100,000.
