A theme park has been forced to ban a daredevil squirrel from one of its rides as its antics posed a health and safety risk.
The rodent was said to be causing headaches for operators at Alton Towers, in Britain, by getting in the way of improvement work on an attraction at the resort.
Workers noticed the squirrel riding the revamped Sonic Spinball rollercoaster as it was tested in the mornings and joining visitors who were offered an early go on it before the official opening.
The animal was also caught stealing food.
