    A burglar abducted a parrot - fearing it would reveal his identity to police.

    Monty, an African Grey parrot, was the only witness as David Carlile, 32, stole antiques, jewellery and cash from an isolated country house.

    When he was arrested and asked why he took the bird Carlile said: "Parrots can talk and I didn't want it grassing me up."

    According to The Sun a police spokesman said: "We were in stitches. This guy really thought we could interview the parrot.

    "It's just as well we nicked him through fingerprints and DNA - I wouldn't have liked to have introduced the parrot to a judge as our chief prosecution witness.
