Have your say

A major supermarket was evacuated and closed for more than an hour after a SEAGULL broke in started attacking customers.

The brazen bird - who was on the hunt for a snack - flew into the Tesco store sparking all staff and customers to flee in panic.

Staff at the branch in Truro, Cornwall, were then forced to shut up shop for more than an hour while they attempted to catch the aggressive gull on Tuesday evening.

Feeling a bit peckish, the brazen bird swooped into the store at about 8.30pm, flying into a customer’s face as it came through the doors.

Eventually it decided to perch on the pet food aisle on a pack of IAMS - next to a sign for pet insurance.
