Seagull stands on top of bin and proclaims himself king

A SEAGULL has landed at the summit of a litter bin and proclaimed himself the ruler of all he surveys. 

Gull Tom Logan says the bin, filled with discarded cans, crisp packets and sandwich crusts, is his throne and that he is now its undisputed emperor-for-life.

He squawked: “I hold dominion over the bin. All of its contents are mine, and anyone who dares approach my kingdom risks my mighty wrath.

“All hail me. All hail the seagull king!”

A passer-by disposing of a coffee cup then dethroned Logan by approaching the bin, following which he settled on a lamppost.

Logan continued: “I am exiled now. But keep faith in me and I promise your king shall return!”
