Feed the Seagulls and get fined £2,500!

New signs put up in the popular seaside resort warn people that they could be slapped with a £2,500 fine if they feed the gulls.
City leaders say the move has been introduced to combat the nuisance caused by the big birds which hungrily scavenge for leftover food given any opportunity.
Jimmy Robinson, chair of the town appearance committee of Aldeburgh Town Council, and the former mayor, said: "People complain very bitterly about the seagulls and the more people feed them, the more they come."
