Hawks fly in to solve seagull crematorium problem

A flock of seagulls that was pestering mourners at Eastbourne crematorium has been brought under control using hawks.

The hawks are specially trained to scatter and scare the gulls away without harming them.

Eastbourne Borough Council contacted Cleankill Pest Control to help stop mourners being dive-bombed as they left the chapel. 

Councillor Margaret Bannister, portfolio holder for bereavement services, said: “Staff at the crematorium were becoming aware of the problems that the seagulls were causing to people attending services or visiting the grounds.
