Jersey Tiger in London

I understand that Jersey Tigers have been established in various parts of London over the last few years, e.g. see:

Jersey Tigers breaking out!

To follow on from what Martin says these are well established in parts of (especially) South London now but in 2009 we had the first county record in Bedfordshire and there were also 3 or so reports in Hertfordshire and I beleive also in Essex around the same time in early August.
