Seagulls in Dublin could be given contraceptive drugs in a bid to make them less aggressive.

The Irish Sun reports that politicians in the capital have suggested we follow the example of officials in Belgium who recently introduced pellets aimed at reducing the number of pigeons in Brussels.

R-12 pigeon pills were dispensed from feeds placed around the city and the operation has successfully reduced the population.

There are around 1800 seagull nests in Dublin county and one seaside chipper has reported that the birds steal around 35 fish dinners a week.
