Boy 'bitten by fox' at school

A YOUNG boy was treated in hospital after a report that he had been attacked by a fox, police confirmed yesterday.

The three-year-old was bitten on the arm while attending a party at Dorothy Stringer High School in Brighton, East Sussex, on Saturday. It is believed the child, who has not been named, stroked the tail of an animal that was sticking out from under a temporary building when it turned on him.

It comes a fortnight after nine-month-old twins Isabella and Lola Koupparis were attacked after a fox crept into their bedroom in London.
