A football club’s seagull mascot has been ruffling feathers this week after clashing with football fans—from his own side.

The popular Torquay united mascot Gilbert the Gull was spotted arguing with his own supporters at the home match against Grimsby on Saturday.

Afterwards fans took to the Devon team’s website to complain that Gilbert was using threatening gestures and swearing badly.

Torquay United chief executive Andrew Candy investigated the incident, and reprimanded the employee who was wearing the seagull costume.

Gilbert has been allowed to resume his duties but has been banned from Popside home stand to avoid further clashes with supporters.

Disgraced Westcountry based cyclist Jonathan Tiernan-locke was today back in the saddle taking on the gruelling one hundred kilometre Exmoor Beast Cycle ride.

He was banned from professional cycling and stripped of his title as winner of the tour of Britain after failing a drugs test. He says the ruling only relied on one blood test which showed an anomaly and he can't afford to appeal. He has mixed feelings about returning as a full time professional racer.
