Calls for tighter controls on urban foxes after baby attack

There have been calls to control urban foxes after a four-week-old baby was attacked in south east London.

It has been reported that one of the infant's fingers was severed and then successfully re-attached by surgeons at St Thomas' Hospital.

London Mayor Boris Johnson said: "This sort of attack, though terrible, is rare, but we must do more to tackle the growing problem of urban foxes."

Jon Brain reports.
