Dive-bomber birds swoop inside store.

Shoppers are being driven off their trolleys by dive-bombing birds trapped inside a busy supermarket.

Starlings and sparrows are swooping on customers browsing in the aisles.

Now environmental health chiefs are warning they'll step in if bosses don't put an end to the problem.

The birds are thought to have flown in while building work was taking place at the rear of the ASDA superstore in Phoenix Park, Linwood, Renfrewshire.

Officials from Renfrewshire Council's environmental services department are monitoring the menace.

They confirmed they have written to ASDA warning that a notice under the Food Safety Act could be served on the company if the problem is not solved soon.

An ASDA spokesman said complaints had been received and everything possible was being done to rectify the situation.

The company have hired pest-control specialists to catch the birds and to prevent others getting into the store.
