Fox removed from Parliament after it starts running around

A fox has been released into the street after getting loose in Parliament.

The animal was pictured running around what appeared to be a cafe area, looking confused.

A message on Conservative MP Julia Lopez’s Twitter account read: “Team Lopez: just leaving Westminster office for the night and see a fox climbing escalator into Portcullis House!

‘We have seen some strange things in Parliament since 2017, but this tops it!’

Another social media user shared a picture of the fugitive fox eyeing a member of the authorities with suspicion.

The Sun’s Westminster correspondent tweeted: ‘There is a fox loose in parliament! Cops are trying to shoo it out but it’s on the upper floor of PCH [Portcullis House] now.’

As efforts to remove it failed, she added: ‘The fox has now scarpered up to the third floor. Police with big gloves have gone in pursuit.’

She then tweeted a video of the animal being removed from the building in a blue box and released into the street.

Some responding complained that the fox should have been taken somewhere else, with one saying: ‘Richmond Park might have been a better place to let him out. He’ll probably get run over.’

However, others said the fox was used to city life and would find its way, with one responding: ‘They’re very clever animals and have adapted to urban living. The fox will be okay.’

Some said that this was a better way to remove a fox than that demonstrated by lawyer Jolyon Maugham, who went viral in December when he tweeted: ‘Already this morning I have killed a fox with a baseball bat. How’s your Boxing Day going?’

Mr Maugham said the animal was trapped in his garden and causing chickens distress.

He added he had killed the animal while wearing his wife’s kimono.
