A cheeky fox has been spotted bouncing on a family’s trampoline in their back garden.

The ‘regular visitor’ to mum-of-three Natasha Townsend-Theobold’s home in Bury Close, Gosport, was filmed chasing a football in the circular trampoline as he bounced along.

The 43-year-old podiatrist was ironing clothes and looking out at her back garden when she saw movement and thought her son nine-year-old Blake was already on the trampoline at 8am.

She said: ‘I was just about to shout and realised it was a fox.

‘He comes in nearly every day. I think he’s been in quite a few times, I’ve noticed the little paw marks on there.

‘It’s the first time I’ve seen him in it. First of all I thought it was my boy outside in it.

‘He kept running around and around and bouncing, and playing with a ball jumping on the trampoline.’
