Raccoon rescued from town garden

A raccoon has been rescued from a tree in a garden in Dorset after a surprised couple found it while birdwatching.

David and Ena Webber, who live in Walcott Avenue, Christchurch, spotted the animal on Saturday morning.

They called police, who said they had no reports of a missing raccoon, and then the RSPCA, which collected it.

The charity said it did not know where it had come from but said the animal was in good condition and was probably someone's escaped pet.
