The secret code found with the pigeon

A secret message dating back more than seven decades to WWII has been found attached to a dead pigeon in a Surrey chimney.

In the hope of deciphering the note its contents were sent to GCHQ, but experts there have been unable to decode it.

Now the government has asked for your help in cracking the code.

The pigeon message is as follows:

AOAKN HVPKD FNFJW YIDDC
RQXSR DJHFP GOVFN MIAPX
PABUZ WYYNP CMPNW HJRZH
NLXKG MEMKK ONOIB AKEEQ
WAOTA RBQRH DJOFM TPZEH
