Police tweet about Floyd the flamingo SUS-171123-110127001

The pink poser was found by officers loitering in the road outside The Forum car park in the early hours of Monday.

Now police say that the flamingo - since dubbed Floyd by officers - is being cared for at the police station. And they are appealing for information as to how he got into the road.

They tweeted a new message this morning after Floyd’s discovery caused a flutter on Twitter: “Just to confirm, he’s fine and is being looked after at the station.

“If you have any info to help us re-unite him with his owner, then let us know.”

And, following much public debate on social media, the officers add: “By the way, he’s not real.”
