'Bird brain' arrested after he reported intruders on roof which were pigeons
A MAN rang police to report intruders on his roof - only to discover the unwanted guests were in fact pigeons.
Police were called to Egerton Court on Barrow Island this morning after a 20-year-old male resident reported that someone was attempting to gain access to his flat.
When police arrived, it turned out the noise he was hearing from his roof was in fact caused by pigeons.
However, police then realised the man was wanted and subject to a warrant for allegedly breaching a community order, and so he was arrested and taken to Barrow Police Station.
