Watch: ‘Seagull boy’ wins screeching championship with uncanny impression

A nine-year-old British boy who can perform an uncanny impression of a seagull has won a screeching championship in Belgium.

Cooper, from Chesterfield, Derbyshire, wanted to become "Seagull Boy" similar to when Peter Parker became Spider-Man after his namesake bit him.

The youngster started doing impressions of the birds after being bitten by one while eating a tuna sandwich.

Cooper won the juvenile category of the EC Gull Screeching competition in De Panne with a score of 92 points out of a possible 100, the highest overall in the championship.
