If seagulls are being a pest in your area, contact your council's Environmental Health or Pest Control. If a seagull is injured call RSPCA.
Avon & Somerset Police have put out a request on social media for people to stop calling 101 over issues regarding seagulls.
Despite a number of reports this month about seagull incidents increasing, police are asking people to think about the situation before they call.
Police have released CCTV footage of Derek Morris, better known as Bristol's legendary DJ Derek.
It is exactly three weeks since he disappeared. The footage below shows him in the Commercial Rooms in Bristol's Corn Street.
The last known sighting of Derek was on Friday July 10, when he was seen crossing the road from Rupert Street to Lewins Mead in the city centre.
The country's biggest trade union, UNISON, has written to its members saying it is worried about the impact of Somerset's Chief Constable returning to work.
It follows calls from retired police officers and serving ones for Nick Gargan to step down after he was found guilty of eight misconduct charges.
Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens today outlined the procedure to be followed in the Chief Constable’s misconduct proceedings.
The misconduct process is not yet complete. I’m waiting for the misconduct panel’s report, when I receive that I will hold a further hearing with the Chief Constable to determine his sanction.
I have read the open letters from the staff associations and I am listening to the views of residents. The whole procedure for police misconduct is strictly regulated. Like all judicial processes when proceedings are not complete it is not possible to discuss or comment upon them until they have been finalised.
In the meantime Chief Constable Nick Gargan will not be returning to work in Avon and Somerset. However he will be carrying out some national work with the National Police Chiefs Council.
Retired police officers from the Avon and Somerset force have joined calls for a quick resolution to the issues surrounding their chief constable.
In a strongly worded open letter to Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens, The Association of Retired Police Officers described the situation around Nick Gargan as 'devastating' and urged a 'speedy, calm and harmonious' resolution.
We fear that, if a Chief Constable with eight findings of guilt for misconduct remains, there will be little respect for him for the duration of his contract. The consequences that will ensue for individuals include low morale, de-motivation and inevitable concern about their vulnerability within the Force structure and it is your clear duty to avoid such a situation.
The Chief Constable as the overall head for maintaining discipline and control of the Force must be an individual of impeccable character. We cannot see how that could possibly be achieved in the current circumstances.

A petition calling on Nick Gargan to resign has reached more than 800 signatures.

But when our correspondent Bob Constantine tried to push her further on the issue, her PR stepped in.

1/2 A suicidal girl is spending her 18th birthday in a police cell while she waits for a space at an appropriate mental health unit. #ASP24
Avon and Somerset Police have said that a suicidal girl had to spend her 18th birthday in a custody cell because there was no space at a mental health unit.
It comes as new figures have been released today showing that there were seventeen deaths in police custody last year, the highest number for five years.
Eight of those who died in custody had mental health concerns.
Nigel Campbell from Rethink Mental Illness told ITV West Country "What we're asking for is this not to be the situation, we shouldn't ask Police to be in that position."
Avon and Somerset Police say their campaign against drink and drug driving is working.
It's called Operation Tonic, and in June they breathalysed almost 1,000 drivers and arrested 78 - a 12% drop from last summer.
They also used new equipment introduced this year to conduct roadside drug tests.
