A scared young woman locked herself in her room and dialled 999 after hearing noises upstairs in her Worstead home yesterday.

But when police swiftly arrived and searched the house, they found that the intruder was a trapped bird.

A police spokesman said: “The ‘suspect’ turned out to be a blue tit frantically flying into the bedroom window so, unusually, the officer assisted in the suspect’s escape, much to the relief of the young lady.”
