Regarding our sea gulls in Yarmouth; The gulls are hungry, they have young to feed, they have always relied on chips etc from the locals on the market.

They have only turned vicious since they have stopped people feeding them. Why put it in the litter bins when the gulls are crying for food - it’s cruel.

And as for the two men with the walking sticks that killed and cruelly hurt a baby gull, I’d like to see someone smash them across the head and see how it feels. They are wicked.

As for the mess the gulls make, it is up to the council to hose it down every day, as they would if royalty was visiting.

Let the birds be; man have taken their food from the sea - they’re only doing what men have done to them.
