A woman claims she was attacked by a seagull who then made off with her lunch.
Laura Gibson, 23, was looking forward to eating her chicken bake from Greggs in Dundee which she’d bought during her lunch break.
But as she headed back to work, she claims the bird ‘dive-bombed’ towards her and knocked her backwards.
After recovering from the mini blow, the 23-year-old was even more shocked to see the seagull disappearing with her food, having removed it from the paper wrapper in her hand.
Laura, a human resources assistant, told the Evening Telegraph: ‘I had just moved into a new office in the city centre. I’d really been looking forward to a chicken bake, so I went to get myself one.
‘As I was walking out the Overgate this gull dive-bombed me and hit me with its neck and feet, knocking me back.
It managed to take the bake out of its wrapper then flew off with it. It would have been quite impressive in a way — if it hadn’t been so scary.’
Laura quickly returned to her office unsure of whether laugh or cry at the situation.
She is yet to go back out for lunch but said she will be more careful next time, adding: ‘I was so embarrassed. People were laughing at me because I fell back and because the gull stole my food.
‘But there are a lot of gulls out there and they are quite dangerous. What if that had been a child with the food?
