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.
