IN answer to the letter from Alan Perkins ‘Control the Gulls’.

We often get people move down to Weymouth to be by the sea. Then they usually end up moaning about the poor seagulls. I was born in Weymouth in 1940, and I love the gulls. That is part of living by the sea. To hear them screeching.

He asks has anyone anything to say about the gulls?

Yes, I would say, if you don’t like sea gulls, it’s best not come here to love in the first place. Sea gulls home is by the sea.
