RARE FOX SPOTTED: A 98-year-old Sidmouth pensioner was stunned when she spotted a rare albino fox in the middle of the night.

Abbeyfield resident Marjorie Hodnett got a glimpse of the all-white creature in Station Road at 3am earlier this month. Marjorie often observes foxes from her window but couldn’t believe her eyes at the mysterious animal that appeared. “It was white from top to bottom. I’ve never seen one like that before in my 98 years,” she said.
