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.”
