Could it happen here? A £50 penalty for feeding the gulls?

The Doc tells the Gurn of news of a new initiative down south:
'Holidaymakers and residents in Burnham-On-Sea who feed seagulls or pigeons could face fines of up to £50 from next spring.'
Could a few crumbs get you in the same do-da as a doggie jobbie? i.e. with a wallet £50 lighter. How will the authorities distinguish between duck and swan lovers and fans of other birds?

It would just take your dug to drop something, you to also drop something (A hidden bag of breadcrumbs?), one swooping gull, and you would need to find £100. Jump in your car start the engine (It's cold), phone your bank to see if they have sufficient funds to pay your fines, and you are another £60 out of pocket for using a mobile in a vehicle.
My bank would probably need another government loan to meet these fines
