BIRDS of prey are set to swoop along North Walsham's Market Place in a bid to rid the town of its messy pigeons.

Town councillors have agreed to accept the offer of a free demonstration from a firm which uses hawks to control pigeon nuisance. Members felt the situation had improved since the rear of the former fishmonger's shop on Market Place had been boarded up.

North Norfolk District Council was investigating the cost of pigeon deterrents, said Eric Seward.

Councillors were pleased with the success of the town's July 4 Clean Up Day and have agreed to hold similar quarterly events. The council will also take part in Keep Britain Tidy's national Big Tidy Up in September.
