Taylor Swift fans 'living in fear' as seagulls threaten to spoil first leg of UK tour

Taylor Swift fans were horrified as a flock of seagulls arrived at the popstar's first UK show of the Era Tour tonight.

Thousands of fans descended on Murrayfield stadium in Edinburgh on Friday night for the eagerly anticipated show. The popstar is playing a series of gigs in the Scottish capital before she comes to Anfield Stadium next week.

The 34-year-old has a legion of superfans who queue for hours in advance to make sure they get a good spot close to the stage. However, it seems as though some of the fans may not have cleaned up after themselves as large amounts of litter attracted a huge numbers of seagulls.

A Swiftie said: "Rubbish is strewn everywhere in the queuing section and piled up. It looks like it is from people who had been waiting for hours earlier.

"It was disgusting! There were duvets, blankets, food, juice and empty bottles.

"Seagulls were hovering and diving down. One girl got s**t on and everyone was scared they were going to be next. Really concerning for the environment if it all goes into landfill."

Taylor Swift will perform her Eras Tour at Murrayfield stadium on Friday June 7, Saturday 8 and Sunday 9. The tour will come to Anfield from June 13 - 15.
