A BBC wildlife project got more than it bargained for, when Raytec Infra-Red lighting helped to capture an intruder live-in-act, in the middle of the night. The CCTV system belongs to BBC wildlife presenter Simon King, and was installed as part of a 'Fox Family Cam' project, designed to film a family of foxes living in London and stream live video 24-hours-a-day to King's website.
