Polecat found at roadside is adopted by Wiltshire family

An orphaned polecat found at the side of the road, has been adopted by a Wiltshire family.

The three month old kit - named Tommy - was spotted at the roadside by Gary Cox from Shalbourne, near Burbage, as he was doing his paper round.

The family already has two dogs and four ferrets, but despite the competition Tommy is still managing to "run about and cause mischief".
