THIS isn't any old hawk, this is an M&S hawk.
The bird of prey has been drafted in to scare away seagulls from the roof of Marks and Spencer in Church Litten, Newport.
Devil, a 12-year-old Harris hawk, has been spotted outside the store with his handler on several occasions, with his latest mission taking place on Wednesday.
The store pays Rentokil for the service and the hawk's handler said it was not on site to harm seagulls or hatchlings but to make the gulls believe a predator was living on the roof of building to put them off nesting.
