FOX problems are still rampant in the borough of Bexley.

The following information, which was given to London gardeners, could prove invaluable to residents.

Foxes are being blamed for the disappearance of house sparrows from Primrose Hill and Regent's Park.

The Friends of Regent's Park and Primrose Hill have been told to let weeds grow and put up nest boxes in their gardens to encourage the birds back to the neighbourhood.

Park wildlife officer Tony Duckett also blamed a rise in foxes for a "total loss of wildfowl eggs".

One warm day recently, I went to London on a train which stopped at Falconwood.

A fox was sitting on its haunches on the platform.

I wondered whether he really was waiting for a train and where he would go.

But I must admit to being completely foxed.
