Newsagent Zaman Iqbal posted a series of videos to his Facebook account after the repeat offender kept trying to steal from his shop.
The videos show the aerial thief casually stroll through the doors of Sweet News store, in Aberdeen, and sneak about the aisles looking for its favourite snacks. It then decides on a packet of nuts and proceeds to try and tear them open on the shop floor in front of the bemused staff. Zaman then takes measures into his own hands and chases the feathery thief back out of the shop, shouting: “Oi, you. Get out of my shop.” Zaman, 24, who has run the store for two years, yesterday said: “We do get seagulls quite often trying to come into the store, but we try to scare them away and keep them out.
