NOTTINGHAM TAKES FURTHER COURT ACTION AGAINST PIGEON FEEDER

Nottingham City Council is seeking to take out an injunction to stop a local man feeding pigeons in the park, BBC Radio Four's Today programme reported this morning.

The council has already served an abatement order on Don Booth preventing him from feeding pigeons in the street, Today reported. Mr Booth feeds huge flocks of pigeons at his home and in the nearby park.

Michael Williams, Nottingham's director of leisure and community services, told the programme that Mr Booth feeds the pigeons close to a children's play area in the park, which attracts vermin to the area.

Taking legal action will be expensive but it is justified, Mr Williams said. 'It clearly is not right that this individual is able to create this sort of nuisance and disturbance to his neighbours and people living nearby', he said.
