I read with horror and disgust the amount of taxpayers' money spent on rescuing three seagulls.I totally agree with the spokesperson from Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue, the gulls are vermin - why they are a protected species, I fail to understand.Living where I do, from March to September we are woken at the crack of dawn on a daily basis with the screeching of the adult birds and, even worse, in July/August when the young hatch - and reduction in numbers, however achieved, would be welcome.I wonder how the locals feel about this expenditure, at a time when we are being told of cuts to personal services on a daily basis and £800 is spent on three seagulls. I am sure feelings must be running high.Joan Treece,102 Hulham Road, Exmouth.
