Councillor Jefferson Horsely is frustrated with the continuous problem of rubbish being torn out of refuse bags, placed on the streets by restaurants and cafes, by hungry seagulls.

Despite raising this topic at the recent Full Council meeting at Taunton Deane Borough Council on the 11th July, the Conservative Environment Portfolio Holder responded by suggesting that the Council has minimal ability to prevent such antisocial behaviour despite innovative approaches taken by other Councils around the country to prevent the mess caused by seagulls. 

Below is a picture Jefferson took by ASK restaurant (former Post Office) on the 4th August at 11:10 am!
