Tiger-like cat spotted twice within days

Beaminster couple Ken and Vera Caldwell spotted a tiger-like beast twice in just a few days.

They first saw the animal through their kitchen window on a clear sunny morning last week at around 6am.

Mr Caldwell, of Horn Hill House, said: "It was slowly walking along the edge of the lawn about 30 metres distant. At first we thought it was a large fox but we soon realised that the colour, face, and the tail were wrong.

Thousands flock to festival

Thousands of revellers poured into Wimborne over the weekend to lap up the atmosphere in the town's hugely popular annual folk festival.

The three-day spectacular attracted 30,000 visitors with a feast of music, dance and charity stalls. And a high police presence kept trouble to a minimum, with just 17 arrests for minor disorder.
