The Disney-themed café inside the world's biggest Primark was temporarily closed after a 'mouse sighting' - and it wasn't Mickey.

Famed for its mouse-shaped pancakes, diners had the shock of a lifetime when they reportedly spotted a real-life rodent in the megastore's popular eatery.

The two customers allegedly filmed the mouse as it scuttled across the café floor on Wednesday, June 26, a source claimed.

The horrified shoppers complained and Primark bosses shut the café down before raising the alarm with pest control.

A deep clean was carried out by staff and pest control arrived to hunt for the mouse, Birmingham City Council has confirmed.

A full inspection was undertaken by environmental health officers on Thursday.

Primark has since confirmed there had been reports of a mouse sighting and that they have stepped up their pest control measures.

No evidence of the mouse was discovered and the café is now back up and running.

A Primark spokesman said:

The Primark Café with Disney is hugely popular with our customers and food safety is of paramount importance.
