Wanted posters have been issued after three ornamental birds went missing in North Somerset.

The seagull, woodpecker and owl disappeared in Weston-super-Mare more than a year ago and the council now wants them back.

It is offering a "no questions asked" amnesty to secure the birds' return.

The ornaments were put up in 2007 on posts at the station, Grove Park and the library as part of the Weston Civic Pride regeneration project.

A council spokesman said the authority wanted to put them back on display.

Councillor Elfan Ap Rees, deputy leader of North Somerset Council, said: "Any information leading to their whereabouts will be treated in confidence and a 'no questions asked' amnesty will be offered to anyone who turns them in at the town hall or Winter Gardens offices, wrapped in brown paper if necessary."
