Urban seagulls - friend of fiend?

Urban seagulls are becoming an increasing problem across the South West. Local MP Don Foster has recently called on a 'seagull summit' to discuss the problems caused by these feathered creatures.

It's estimates that there are 5,000 of them in Bristol and 6,000 in Gloucester. Experts say more research needs to be done on why these gulls thrive in urban communities.
