There's no doubt that a break at the seaside does you good. But, for one town in Kent, a stay by a young artist 100 years ago founded an entirely new way of thinking about art. Jamie Stephens reports.
A woman from Kent has been forced to wear a colander on her head every time she ventures into her garden because of seagull attacks.
Seagulls have been divebombing the woman when she goes out to the garden, one attack even drew blood.
The council is now considering producing a report on how to prevent the bird attacks as several residents have had similar problems.
Independent shops are supposedly the lifeblood of our towns and villages, but the retailers have been under threat for years.
They face pressure from large retail chains, both in and out of town, and in the last decade from the onslaught of the Internet. Not to mention single, double and even triple-dip recessions.
Now the independents are fighting back. A new breed of traders are setting up, alongside those established businesses that have survived the worst that has been thrown at them. They are determined to revitalise our high streets. David Johns reports from Herne Bay.

A 49-year-old woman has been reported missing from her home in Herne Bay. Angela Gullett was last seen at home in Pettman Close at 6.30am on 4th March 2013.
Angela’s family, and the police, are very worried about her as the circumstances around her disappearance are unusual and out of character.
She is described as white, 5 feet 8 inches tall, of large build with shoulder length straight brown hair and brown eyes. The last time anyone saw her, she was wearing a brown fleecy coat, dark coloured jeans, dark blue shoes and she was carrying a black and pink backpack.
If anyone has seen a woman fitting this description they are asked to call police immediately on 101. If Angela sees this appeal she is asked to get in touch with her family or the police.
