The night time visitor was seen by a volunteer at the city council's CCTV hub.

Shops along Salisbury High Street had a water-loving window shopper last week, as an otter was spotted on camera wandering around. 

An eagle eyed volunteer saw the animal on the CCTV, as it took a stroll past stores like New Look and Jones Bootmaker at around midnight.


A spokesperson for Salisbury City Council said: 

"The City Council is delighted that our city's medieval high street is being enjoyed both day and night by a variety of visitors and the recording shows how skilled the CCTV operators are at noticing the unusual."


The authority are once again appealing for more CCTV operators

They are looking for volunteers to monitor and operate their state-of-the-art system.
