Man banned from pub because of pet ferrets
A man has been banned from his favourite pub after complaints about - his three ferrets.
Former soldier Tim Pender, 57, regularly drinks and dines in the Old Coastguard with his pets Joy, Grace and Jason.
The three ferrets have long dined with him on his lap or on a lead and Tim says he needs them to help him leave the house each day because he's agoraphobic.
But Tim says he is distraught after being barred from the boozer because of his furry friends.
The manager said they had to take action after getting several complaints over many months from other diners about their"pungent" smell.
