Seagulls
There are concerns playground food has attracted seagulls

Pupils at a school in Aberdeen have been told to snack inside because of seagull problems.

The move has been made at Walker Road Primary in Torry, which is close to Aberdeen harbour, amid concern food in the playground is encouraging the gulls.

Aberdeen City Council said janitorial staff were on the look-out for nests.

A spokesperson added there had been no actual attacks by the birds on pupils.
