Man lashes out over dropped chips

Caution issued over behaviour

A man's been arrested after seemingly losing his temper over a chippy tea.

Police say the individual became incensed after dropping his supper, lashing out and kicking a seagull who swooped down to eat his food.

Seeing the act of animal cruelty prompted a passer-by to accost the man.

He then lashed out, pushing them to the ground.

The hungry aggressor was taken into police custody overnight, and subsequently received a caution.
