While foxes are usually timid and shy away from humans, the brazen intruder stayed in the garden for around 45 minutes.

Speaking to the BBC, Phil Carter said: "My wife shouted, 'quick, grab your phone, we've got a two-legged fox on the lawn'.

"We had about five minutes of it going around the lawn smelling and picking up some meat and then off it went like a rocket."

Derbyshire Wildlife Trust has said that the sighting was unusual but the fox is healthy and has adapted well.

A spokesperson for the charity said: "We've never seen anything like this in the wild before but the animal looks relatively healthy and appears to have adapted to life on two legs."
