Wetherspoons under attack! Seagulls wreak havoc on punters at Brit boozer

The Imperial boozer in Exeter, Devon, has been plagued by the scavenging birds in recent weeks and months.

Seagulls have been terrorising the pub’s customers, dive-bombing them and snatching their meals.

But the situation came to a head last weekend when the winged menaces were filmed swooping down and snatching two dinners from separate tables in just an hour.

Staff were forced to clear the mess and offer replacement meals, saying this was just a snapshot of a regular problem outdoors at the pub.

So now the pub has hired a feathered expert to put a stop to the flying headaches once and for all.

A spokesman for Wetherspoon said: “We can confirm that a large number of gulls, at The Imperial, is causing disruption for customers and staff in the pub gardens.

“Unfortunately, due to the size of the gardens, netting would be an impractical solution, because of the wide open space.

“Other options have been researched and a natural bird deterrent option has been agreed.

“Management at the pub have just gained approval for a Bird of Prey bird deterrent programme, to be carried out in the garden, as soon as possible.”

The move comes after Daily Star Online recently revealed how a seagull picked up and flew off with a baby chihuahua.

The dog was snatched from his garden in Paignton, Devon, to its owner’s horror.

We also recently revealed how council bosses are urging locals to ward off seagulls by tying a chain to their homes and shaking it when they see one.

Shepway District Council in Kent is telling people that if the “foolproof” plan fails, people can alternatively wave a towel or white cloth at them out of windows.

In a bizarre flyer, the council tells residents: “It must be done regularly and it must be maintained until the birds have got the message and gone away.”
