Video: Boys feeding laxatives to seagulls sparks outrage

A recording of a group of boys feeding laxatives to seagulls and the somewhat messy results has gone viral.

The lads spiked crisp packets with the sticky substance and threw them on the beach while the birds subsequently devoured them.

Shortly afterwards, beach goers are covered in faeces by the distressed birds circling above.

However, the video has also sparked outrage among animal lovers.
