After pottering around next to a shop, the badger picks up pace before something catches the mammal’s eye and it returns to look through the window - watch below.

A funny video shows the moment a badger was seen indulging in some window shopping as it casually walked around a shopping centre.

The mammal was seen happily trotting around the shopping centre in the early hours of April 22, checking out the items for sale in the shop windows.

Greggs manager Gemma Chew, who shared the video, said: Gemma said: "It's literally the funniest thing I've seen, just for the fact that you don't really expect to see a badger there normally, you'll find them in the woodlands but not looking through the shops.

"He must have been doing a little pre-shopping. I really don't know how he got up here, there are only really the escalators in the direction, we can only assume he came through the automatic doors.”
