A DORCHESTER man came face-to-face with an unexpected visitor.

Rhys Cole, 22, was watching TV at his home in the county town when he looked up and was startled to see a fox staring in at him through the window.

However, as soon as he got up to take a picture the fox shied away and trotted off down the garden.

He said: “The garden’s fenced off so I don’t know how he got in.

“You just don’t expect to see a fox in broad day light in your back garden.”
