Hurst resident Prue Heron has captured proof of an unlikely friendship between a tortoise and a friendly fox.

Prue said she was having lunch at her friend’s flat in Hove when they saw the fox - a regular visitor. She said: “Then we saw the magical sight of this healthy dog fox fearlessly coming into her fenced area of the garden. It went straight to the tortoise which wasn’t the least bit nervous and, as you can see, they even had a little bit of a sniff at each other.“
