Cardiff Council is to deploy an extra cleaning team to tackle the rubbish scattered by scavenging seagulls.

It's the breeding season for the birds and they search for food in the city centre ripping open bags.

The council says the birds are very intelligent and are a protected species under UK Law. Now a team will work after the normal day shift and extra hours at weekends.

New storage bins will also be introduced.


Police appeal after serious assault in Rhyl

North Wales Police is investigating after a man was assaulted in Rhyl on Sunday 17th July 2016.

Police say the incident happened between 8:30pm and 9:30pm on Sunday the 17th of July.

A local man aged in his 20’s was walking in an alleyway between Kinmel Street and Windsor Street Rhyl when he was attacked. He sustained a number of injuries.

Unfortunately he (the victim) was unable to get a good description of his attackers but from initial enquiries we are keen to trace two men believed to have been in the area at the time.

I’d also appeal to anyone else who was in the area or who knows anything about the assault to contact Police and help us piece together exactly what took place.
