A canary with a crazy yellow hairdo has been nicknamed Boris Johnson due to his similarity to the new Prime Minister.

The bird was spotted on Saturday by a member of the public and brought into RSPCA's Little Valley Animal Centre in Exeter.

Megan Higgins, RSPCA animal collection officer, said: "The woman spotted the little canary and a budgie flying around the local park and knew they must be lost pets as they both had rings on their legs.

"Unfortunately, we've not been able to trace this sweet little canary's owner.
