Expert tackles playground pests
Bird scarer Bob Painting
The birds were driven out with loud noises
A school in Wiltshire called in specialist help to deal with thousands of "disruptive influences".

Longleaze School in Wootton Bassett is being plagued by starlings.

Head teacher Ann Glenton says the birds make a huge, unhygienic mess in the playground which has to be cleaned up on a regular basis.

Now Dauntsey-based bird scarer Bob Painting has been recruited to drive out the feathered nuisances.

He has used tactics including loud noises to successfully frighten away the birds.
