The Seagulls have landed...Warning signs have previously been put up.<br />
<br />
Lyme Regis council have come up with a cunning plan to rid the Dorset seaside town of its seagull menace this Easter - they've recruited two huge bald eagles to patrol the genteel resort.<br />
<br />
Tourism bosses fear over aggressive seagulls are scaring away visitors and have hired the two fearsome birds of prey to patrol the beaches and promenades this Easter.<br />
