Monday 07 June 2010
Two baby sisters were seriously ill in hospital last night after an apparent fox attack at their home.
Police said the nine-month-old twins were in a "serious but stable" condition after being hurt while sleeping in their cots in an upstairs room. Officers and paramedics were called to a house in Stoke Newington, north London, after reports that the animal had attacked the pair.
The girls are being treated at the Royal London Hospital. They both reportedly suffered arm wounds and one was believed to have facial injuries.
The fox was thought to have been in an upstairs room.
Police said: "The incident is not being treated as suspicious."
