THIS Mr Fox hitched a ride in a police car yesterday after a kindly officer was worried it had been hit by a car after seeing it in the middle of the road.

He stopped his police car in St Edith's Marsh, Bromham and went to investigate.

A spokesman for Devizes police said: "Sgt Robbins found the little fella in the middle of the road at St Ediths Marsh, apparently been hit by a car.

"He had no obvious injuries so was picked up and put carefully in the car and taken up to the vet in Devizes.

"When they arrived Mr Fox seemed intent on getting out of the car having just sat on the back seat all the way there enjoying the ride..

"When the car door was opened he ran off and appeared perfectly able to walk OK."
