IF at first you don't succeed then try again - a message we can all take to heart following Maurice Bishop's success.

It has taken him almost half a century for the March man to achieve a top five finish in national pigeon racing championships - and his bird had to fly 40 miles further than the rest to do it.

His prize for achieving this goal - £150.

And why is his bird called Scramble? Because the bird came through the finishing line while Maurice was enjoying a plate of scrambled eggs.
