WHITE, furry and ever so adorable, this little critter greeted Lucy Scutt and her daughters when they were playing in a park.

Ezie, 3 and Imogen, 2, spotted the rare albino squirrel in Jubilee Park, Waterlooville.

Ms Scutt, 26, of Havant, said: ‘It was in a tree eating an acorn. It was quite beautiful. I thought it was strange because I’d never seen one before but I didn’t realise just how rare they were.’ Only one in every 100,000 squirrels is born without pigment.
