Bird scarers cause 'noise nuisance' claim in East Yorkshire

Residents living near farms in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire have complained that the noise from gas-powered bird scarers is a nuisance.

They say they are being used more frequently and are disturbing the peace.

But the National Farmer's Union has said the bird scarers are a vital tool to keep hungry birds away from crops.
