The practice Olympic volleyball court has been taken over by squirrels.

The little critters have decided to use the court as a place to hide their acorns.

The animals collect the acorns in St James’ Park and then head over to the courts at Horse Guards Parade in Central London to bury them in the sand.

As volleyball teams get in some last-minute practice, they are discovering the squirrels’ hidden treasure beneath the sand.

On Friday (July 20), Olympic organisers arranged for a group to rake the sands of the court each morning to turf up any remaining acorns and then scare squirrels away from stowing their favourite snack there.
