Birds of prey are being used at a school in Cornwall to deal with an increasing number of attacks by seagulls on pupils.

Students at Helston Community College say the gulls have become a menace, and follow them around during breaks, trying to steal food.

Harris hawks are being flown around to scare the gulls away.
