A FERRET was seen roaming around a railway station late at night.

Employees at Bognor Regis train station called the RSPCA after they found the furry friend late on Monday.

Claire Goddard, RSPCA inspector, collected the lost animal the following day.

She said: “She’s a sweet little thing and I do wonder if she is someone’s lost pet as she seemed in good condition - although she did have a couple of ticks, which have now been removed.

“Unfortunately she wasn’t microchipped but we have put posters up and she is on Pets Located.

“This really is a reminder to anyone out there with any pet - not just dogs and cats - to make sure you get your animals microchipped so you can be reunited with them quickly in the event they escape or are lost.”

If anyone does recognise this ferret they can ring the RSPCA appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
