Chip-stealing seagulls target Bridlington tourists


Fish and chip shops in Bridlington have started putting up signs warning people about being attacked by seagulls.

One seafront chip shop owner, Justin Carpenter, claimed he is now losing money because of the number of thefts. He said he is giving out more free bags in compensation for the ones stolen by the birds.

The RSPB said: "There are lots of young birds at the moment and parent gulls are particularly aggressive at this time of year, as they fight for food to feed their young. "
