12th February 2013

Wythenshawe Hospital in Manchester has put up a warning after a fox was seen in the lobby of the maternity wing.

The notice comes after a four-week-old baby was attacked in his cot at home by a fox in Bromley, South London. The sign reads: "Fox Alert. The unit has received reports of a fox in the main maternity entrance area which should not be approached. The Trust has responded to this incident and has involved pest control however in the meantime we would advise all patients and staff to exercise caution when entering or exiting the unit late at night. Please do not feed the fox. Please report any incidents to ward staff."
