A PIGEON managed to get into a store in Basildon.

The Basildon Policing Team were out patrolling last night when there was an intruder alarm at the B&M store in the town centre.

A spokesman for the team said: "Upon arrival it would seem that the suspect had gained entry through the roof but was just looking for somewhere to relax for the evening.

"The suspect has been identified as a very compliant pigeon who did not mean to cause any harm or steal any items, but he was happy for a photo to be taken."
