On Sunday May 7, the emergency services were called out to release a seagull trapped in netting on St Barnabas church.

Grade II Listed, St Barnabas Church was built in the 1830’s. Having fallen into disrepair, it was deconsecrated in 1979. It is now largely empty.

Having been used as a workshop and residence by an altruist involved in supporting homeless people, only the flats remain occupied.

Fire Brigade Crew Manager Rendel, who was there on Sunday afternoon said, “We have been called out for a seagull rescue.

“We have to come out if called as they are protected birds. One is caught in the netting on St Barnabas church.

“We have to come out if called. The RSPCA are in attendance.”
