Aberdeen City Council is considering fining people who put their rubbish out too early, BBC Radio Four's Today programme reported this morning.

Howard Kershaw, Aberdeen's principal cleansing officer, told Today the problem is that people leave black bags out two days or so before collection, the bags are pecked open by seagulls and rubbish scattered.

Mr Kershaw said people must put bags out before 7am on the day of collection, not the night before. The council plans to take persistent offenders to court where they will be fined, he said.
