A seagull cull in Brighton and Hove may not be an option for controlling the large numbers in the city. That's according to the council which receives numerous reports about the birds. Seagulls are frequently criticised for swooping down to take food, and have gained a reputation for aggravating people. The local authority is trying to stop them nesting.

Brighton and Hove Albion's new Amex stadium has won an international award for best new venue.

The Seagulls' home beat stadiums such as the new Juventus ground and venues for the 2012 Olympics to pick up the award in Turin, Italy, last night.

The club moved into the £93m stadium in Falmer last July. It followed years of controversy with campaign groups arguing it would spoil views of the South Downs.
