A sneaky seagull has turned shoplifter by wandering into a store and helping himself to his favourite crisps.

The fearless bird lies in wait every day and pounces at a corner shop in Aberdeen when the door opens.

He sneaks in, grabs his spicy Doritos, then flies off with them in his beak and shares them with other birds.

The seagull, nicknamed Sam by staff and customers, has become so popular locals have started paying for his crisps.

Shop worker Sriaram Nagarajan, 22, said: "Everyone is amazed by the seagull.

"For some reason he only takes that one particular kind of crisps, nothing else will do for him. But he's got it down to a fine art. He waits until there are no customers around and I'm standing behind the till, then he raids the place."

Bosses at the RS McColl shop have now decided to keep the door closed to try to deter Sam.

But customers have taken pity on the bird and have started donating money to keep him in Doritos.

Sriaram added: "He's becoming a bit of a celebrity. Seagulls are usually not that popular but Sam is a star because he's so funny."
