A greedy seagull bagged itself a free meal after spying an unattended pile of breakfast food outside a cafe.
The scavenger seized the opportunity with both wings, jumping onto an outdoor table and guzzling down the remains of the unfinished meal.'Bird eats unattended food' is now a headline? Really? Have local newspapers sunk so low?
This follows revelations from Irish bookmakers Paddy Power that Brighton and Worthing are some of the favourite places to announce a seagull cull.
