A MOTHER was horrified to discover a fox in her 10-year-old son’s bedroom.

On June 16 at around 1.30am Debbie Coe was woken up by the barking of the family boxer dog Cooper in her son Charlie’s room.

She said: “I peeked my head round the door and there was a fox on his bed.”

Miss Coe, of Elibank Road, Eltham, went downstairs to get a mop to shoo the fox away but it managed to escape through an open back door.

The 49-year-old court worker said: “I just couldn’t believe it was so brazen.

“Luckily my son was away on a school trip otherwise I might have had a heart attack.”
