Everyone seems blissfully unaware of the brazen animal apart from one woman warily holding her child outside the Hackney Community College in Hoxton.

Following stories of urban foxes in houses and shops, it is not beyond the bounds of possibility that one would join the humans in an ATM queue, and Twitter users obligingly took the picture at face value.

Some newspapers were also deceived, with one speculating: “Maybe he’s sick of those raw chickens and has been inspired by the summer weather to buy a barbecue.”

But alas, this fox was stuffed. Photographer Martin Usborne hired the prop, reportedly from a taxidermy shop called Get Stuffed, and took it around Hoxton for a series of surrealist shots.
