A PIGEON has again caused the closure of a Headington bakers.

Greggs, in London Road, was forced to shut after a pigeon flew into the store at about 1.30pm on Wednesday.

The unwelcome visitor has flown in on a number of occasions and caused numerous closures.

Spokesman for Greggs Peter Woodall said: “When a pigeon does get loose they tend to panic a little bit.

“Staff followed the company policy. They closed, cleaned down all the surfaces and made sure nothing was affected.”

The store had reopened by 3pm.
