Student Who Returned Home For Six Months Has Flat Invaded By Pigeons
A student who had to leave halls suddenly in March due to the coronavirus pandemic has been told his flat has been invaded by pigeons who have completely destroyed the place and most of his possessions after he forgot to close a window.
Oluwageorge Johnson, 20, received an email from staff at accommodation complex who said they had heard strange noises so had gone in to check it out.
Once inside they were met with a grim scene, with furniture covered in pigeon droppings, eggs in the sink and even a little chick hanging around the place.
Oluwageorge, who is a media and communications student at Nottingham Trent University said today: "I just wish I hadn't seen it myself. Then I might be able to sleep at night.
"I wanted to go back to university last week but I'm going to wait a bit now.
"I'm never leaving a window open again. Everyone's shook.
"Coronavirus had been about so my parents turned up out of the blue to take me back home.
"People were saying that the military had been deployed and my parents are dramatic.
"I left my window open and I was gone for about five months.
"I'd left some random stuff behind that I didn't need like a toaster and clothes that I wouldn't be wearing over the summer."

Photos show the scale of the mess, with a kitchen work surface and hob absolutely covered in droppings, another image shows an open wardrobe with pigeon poop splattered on the floor.
In a third photo a teeny baby pigeon can be seen nestled on top of what appears to be a throw.
He added: "I had an email saying that staff had heard noises coming from my room so went to check and found the mess the pigeons had made.
"My sneakers were covered in poo and my toaster.
"I'm just glad I didn't walk in and find it. That would have been horrible.
"It's an opportunity to buy some new clothes but it's a shame that some of it's gone."
