Seagull-proof sack call to avoid 'annual menace'

SeagullResidents in a coastal area in south Devon have been advised to use seagull-proof rubbish sacks to prevent birds scattering litter.
South Hams District Council provides bags free to homes without wheelie bins or where waste lorries cannot access.
It said the bags were "a simple but effective solution to the annual seagull menace".
The council said it was working to arrange waste collections to avoid bags being left out longer than needed.
Rufus Gilbert, the council's environment services executive member, said "only takes one property not use them and the seagulls get to work, making a mess."also local  coastal
 town of Ilfracombe are thinking of investing in these bags. The bags  have a  secure velco  fastening.tie at back ,weighted base .As is known seagulls are scavengers  sosee open bags as free food so partly our fault.
