ISABELLA and Lola Koupparis are bitten by a fox in their parent’s Hackney home a three-story house worth anything between £800,000 and £850,000 . Pauline and Nick Kouparris’ nine-month-old twins are rushed to hospital. They recover but carry the scars.

Six foxes are trapped and killed. The parents appeal for privacy in what is the Summer of The Fox . Animal rights activists attack the parents. Others attack the fox .
