Tenby tackles litter with seagull-proof bags
Seagulls rifling through a seaside town's litter are being thwarted by a new range of bird-proof rubbish bags.
A two-month trial of the durable, reusable sacks is proving to be a hit with residents of Tenby, Pembrokeshire.
The mover was prompted by the cost, nuisance and poor image created by bird-strewn rubbish in the resort town.
The bags could be offered to residents in other parts of Pembrokeshire as council officials assess the cost-effectiveness of the scheme.
Sue Lane, the mayor of Tenby, explained to BBC Radio Wales' Peter Johnson how the bags work.
