Don Foster MP hopes research into seagulls will help curb the 'growing problem'

For far too long we have been unable to find a solution to curb the growing problem of urban seagulls. In Bath and other areas people are being terrorised by these birds and the current control methods are simply not working.

The problems are getting worse, and unless we understand what it is that makes the gulls so successful we will make no progress. Hopefully, by bringing interested councils and businesses in to fund research we will be able to find a lasting solution that can be used countrywide”
