The tent has been set up in a Doncaster Tesco car park.

"Not what you expect to see when you go shopping!”

He added: “When I went back a few days later, he had moved the tent and it was outside the Vets 4 Pets branch. He’d even found a hook to hang his coat up.

"I am guessing he must be homeless – it was just a really unusual sight to see, a tent pitched in the middle of the Tesco car park.”
