Remembering Dorking's squirrel


Residents of a Surrey town have set up a shrine and an online tribute page after a "celebrity" albino squirrel was run over.

The squirrel had lived in St Martin's churchyard off Dorking High Street for five years and was a favourite with local children and wildlife lovers.

More than 220 people have joined a Facebook page in the animal's memory since its demise last week.

A makeshift shrine has sprung up and residents hope to put up a plaque.

Lou Gardey was among the first on the scene of the accident.
