Kyle Moore, of Lowestoft, was named Young Mammal Photographer of the Year in the 16-18 age group for his black and white picture.

Mr Moore has loved nature photography since getting a camera for his 12th birthday.

The contest was judged by television wildlife expert Simon King, who said: 'Here the photographer has got down to the level of the animal walking through the streets by night, and captures, using the black and white format, the essence of a foraging urban fox.'

Mr Moore, 18, who won a photographer's hide and vouchers from CJ Wildlife, said: 'I love to watch urban foxes. I am always amazed when I observe these spectacular creatures; at how they thrive among busy cities, often without being noticed.
