Eastbourne residents are being asked to watch out for fox cubs after their mother was hit by a car.
East Sussex WRAS said the vixen sadly died from her injuries.
She was found last night (Tuesday) between 16 and 14 Granville road, said the rescue charity, and was lactating – so it is thought her cubs could be around there.
A spokesperson said, “Could residents of that road and the surrounding area please keep an eye out for wandering fox cubs looking for their mum.”
