A FOX control expert thinks the attack on two nine-month old twins is a 'one-off' and is urging residents not to panic.

Will Moore, who runs Foxolutions, specialises in the humane control of foxes.

And he says the attack on Isabella and Lola Koupparis, at their home in Lauriston Road, is not a sign of things to come.

Mr Moore said: "My thoughts are the fox would have been attracted by the smell of nappies.

"When it got into the cot it would have been confronted with noise and flailing arms and then attacked.

"I don't think there's any way this is a precedent. It's very much a one-off.
