STAFF at a Suffolk supermarket have put up special warning signs telling customers to keep an eye out for their latest visitors.

The Asda branch in Stowmarket has been frequented by a family of ducks recently, thought to have wandered from the nearby Museum of East Anglian Life, and staff have now put up “ducks crossing” signs to help protect the birds.

The ducks, who recently welcomed some ducklings to the family, have set up home in the grounds of the store and can often be seen waddling around.

Asda Stowmarket worker Julie Simons suggested putting up the signs and has been named the store's official duck keeper.

She said: “Coming into work every day and seeing the ducks really cheers our colleagues up and we know that our customers love seeing them too.
