Fox attacks on humans 'very rare'

A four-week-old baby boy has been attacked by a fox in his home in Bromley, according to the Metropolitan Police.

The incident has reignited the debate about foxes in urban areas, but should there be a cull of the animals?

Richard Mosley from the British Pest Control Association says foxes are becoming tamer in the UK as people often instigate contact with them.

But he says attacks by foxes on humans remain very rare.
