THIS crafty creature was spotted by eagle-eyed reader Craig Shaw.

Mr Shaw, who lives off Plodder Lane, Farnworth, said he regularly sees the fox in his back garden.

He said: "This little thing pops in every night."

While urban foxes are a common sight in bigger cities such as Manchester and London, they are still quite rare in Bolton.

Figures suggest there are about 33,000 urban foxes across Britain and about 225,000 adult rural foxes.
