Despite attempts by security to remove it, a mischievous cat has been photographed "chilling" on the shelves of Sainsbury's in Brockley.

The feline, which seems to favour the fruit pastille, was snapped by Jenny Stevens, who posted the photo on Twitter.

She wrote: "Cat just chilling in Brockley Sainsbury's.

"Security tried to remove him. He sauntered straight back in."

The grimalkin is believed to be something of a resident at the Mantle Road supermarket, and has been previously snapped plopped down outside it.

However, with packets of fruit pastilles apparently running low at the store, what foodstuff will the moggy turn to in their absence?

Tom McPhail tweeted: "I reckon he's after the Minstrels next."

A Sainsbury's spokeswoman said: "Looks like there was a mix up with our Kit Kat delivery today!”
