The animal charged towards a pensioner, named Billy, and jumped on cars and devoured plant pots during a half-hour rampage.

Shop manager Jonathan Smyth, said he initially mistook the sound of the goat head-butting the window for a bread delivery.

The goat was eventually stopped when a member of the public grabbed it by the horns and led it away.
