While on her lunch break Cathie Kelly, was attacked by a seagull that would not leave her alone. The incident happened right outside a building where Kelly was employed in Greenock, Scotland. Due to a buildup of trash outside the building it attracted seagulls from the coast. One seagull, in particular, began to attack Kelly on her break, unable to escape Kelly fell and down a flight of stairs. Kelly’s coworkers had to run in and out of the building under umbrellas to escape the birds, in a surreal circumstance similar to the film Birds. Kelly sued the building claiming £30,000 damages, but the court agreed to she would receive £7,000.
