“I couldn’t believe what was happening. There was a member of staff with a mop, and others had bottles of water, maybe to splash the birds.”

The shop opened just after 8.30am, when Mr Nelson went in to take these photograhs.

“They warned us they had a couple of pigeons in the shop

“Some of the customers ignored them completely, some were watching on in disbelief, and some were laughing.”
