POSTERS claiming seagulls are government surveillance drones have appeared around the city.

Bemused residents around Hove Station took pictures of the signs which say Seagulls Arn’t Real, Wake Up Brighton.

A picture of the sign was posted online on a page called Keep Brighton Weird.

One commenter, Scott Lawson, said: “The suspicious size of Brighton seagulls compared to others does make this conspiracy believable”

Another commenter said: “I just had one of those government surveillance drones coming in through the upstairs window.”

Brighton and Hove City Council declined to comment on the posters.
