Deafening, aggressive and messy - that is the charge that hangs over unwanted residents in Carbrain.
The individuals in question are of the winged variety – seagulls, whose ear-splitting cries round the clock are driving locals round the bend.
The birds have spent the last few months nesting on Carbrain’s rooftops. Now increasing number of gulls can be seen and heard across the area, robbing residents of their sleep with their raucous noise levels.
Also, a number of locals claimed to have been attacked by them.
Among them is Ryan Martin of Glenacre Road who said: “It‘s so bad I am now scared of walking my dog because I fear for his safety. The situation is out of control. These seagulls are driving me up the wall and I can’t sleep with my window open for the noise.’’
