Maybe they are on the look out for some swimming goggles or water wings for the little ones.

Whatever they are after, this persistent little family have become regulars at Sportskit, Sports & Leisure Wear shop, in Wilkes Ways, Stowmarket.

General manager Tim Spinks said: “They often come in. We don't know what they're after but we just gently herd them back to the door. They get some fairly surprised looks from people.

“I don't know what they are after - maybe something to do with cricket being 'out for a duck'.”

Thanks to Evening Star reader Alan Thompson, of Redwing Close, Ipswich, for sending us the picture.
