Retired teacher Wendy Morrell has described the moment a "huge black bird" swooped into her living room as she watched the French Open.

She said that it narrowly missed her friend Karen's head before coming to rest on a wardrobe at her home in Poole.

She called the police who referred her to Wessex Bird of Prey Rescue.

They returned it to its owner, James Moore, who said it had flown away while he was training it to frighten away seagulls.
