Two nine month-old twins, Isabella and Lola Kouparris, were mauled in their nursery whilst their parents were watching the finale of Britain's Got Talent. The windows had been left open on the ground floor (the house is in a urban development and in a good neighbourhood), due to the heat wave and an urban fox snuck in and attacked the couple's two youngest children. Luckily, the girls' elder brother was left unharmed.
My thoughts and prayers go out to their parents, Nick and Pauline Kouparris, after this awful incident. And it's a relief to hear that the girls are in a "serious but stable" condition at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
MSN UK carries an account of the story here. Whilst Times columnist, Janice Turner, reflects on the problem and the unfortunate but possibly necessary solution.
