SEAGULLS have been found staggering along Britain's beaches - because they have drunk so much alcohol.
Inspector Jo Daniel says "At first, the birds look like they have botulism (an illness caused by bacteria) but then, after vomiting, most seem to recover".
David Couper, an RSPCA vet who has treated a number of gulls at the charity's West Hatch centre in Taunton, Somerset, said: "Sadly a few of the birds have died but a lot of them have made good recoveries and have been released after a few days in our care". The animal welfare society believes that the birds have been drinking leftovers from a local brewery or alcohol producer. RSPCA have had dozens of such cases from the south coast.
