Britons fined for pigeon tossing

Two British men have been fined by a court in Poland for pigeon tossing.

The pair, both aged 24, threw the birds up in to the air in historic Krakow's Renaissance market.

According to local reports, the stunned birds were not able to open their wings and fell to the ground, breaking their wings.

Prosecutor Boguslawa Marcinkowska identified them as Lee James W. of Ulverston and Arron David P. of Barrow-in-Furness, but did not give their last names, in line with Polish privacy law.

She said they were fined 600 zlotys (£130) each.
