A family of foxes have been spotted living under a hut at a railway station.

The mother fox and her seven cubs have been poking their heads from under a hut in Brighton Railway station after first being seen earlier this week.

Bosses at the station now say they are looking at safe ways to move the mother and her cubs away from railway lines.

A spokesman for Govia Thameslink Railway, who run Brighton station, said: “A family of foxes - a mother and seven cubs - are living under a hut by the track at the end of platform eight at Brighton Station.
