I disagree with Tom Bradbury. He has obviously not been on the receiving end of a gull attack.
They don’t just swoop down at people’s heads and the food they are carrying, some go for white and grey laces (presumable they think they are worms).
When nobody is about, so they shouldn’t feel threatened, they land on the roofs of people’s cars and peck them.
It is very upsetting when they attack people.
It is time something was done about the gulls.
