Amateur snapper Martin Docker, 47, from Isle of Dogs, east London, spotted a pair of squirrel going toe-to-toe in his back garden like Ninjas.

These ninja-like squirrels went nuts as they tussled in a dramatic aerial duel. The duo appeared to fly through the air to land roundhouse kicks wrestling-style spear moves and judo-esque throws.

Martin said a family of squirrels regularly visit his garden. He said: 'When I looked out the window they were just going completely nuts'

Martin said: "I'm always out and about taking photos and I have lots of bird, foxes and other animals running around the garden but this time the wildlife came to me.
