A DONKEY left shoppers stunned after wandering into a Tesco Express store in Brockenhurst yesterday afternoon.

This picture shows the moment the animal walked into the store on Brookley Road to the amusement of staff and shoppers.

Tristan Russell, team leader at Tesco Express, said it was a frequent occurrence in the town.

“It’s not the first time it’s happened,” he said.

“They wander around the high street so it’s not particularly unusual. It’s a bit of a nuisance to be honest.”

Staff at the store ushered the animal outside by banging shopping basket together, Mr Russell explained.

He added: “The local college is nearby and all the of the students found it highly amusing.”

Indeed this is not unusual,so hardly news. And by the way, Brockenhurst is a village, not a town, and there is no "high street". The road with the main shops in is called Brookley Road.

A town/village's "High Street" does not have to be named "High Street" to be the accepted "High Street". Brookley Road is for all intensive purposes Brockenhurst High Street.

"it was a frequent occurrence in the town."

"it’s not particularly unusual."

Such is the definition of News for the Echo's purposes.

No. I'd take the realistic view that they were.

In our village the vicar entered his donkey (a**) in the derby. The paper reported Vicars A** out Front. The bishop read it and banned him from racing again. The paper reported Bishop scratches vicars A**. He gave it to the nuns, and they entered it - the bookies reported 'Nun has best a** in town'. Mother superior sold it -'Nun sells A** for ten quid.
