Hundreds of thousands of bats have invaded the town of Ingham in Queensland, Australia, and residents are fed up.

The bats now outnumber the residents in the town and upset locals have asked their council to do something about it.

The animals have caused chaos, with residents complaining about the smell, the dirt and the noise.

However, the bats are protected by law and cannot be culled. Local authorities now say they are trying to "persuade" the bats to move back to their habitat.

Local residents have told of the unpleasant smell the bat colony has brought with it, as well as the constant screeching sounds that the animals make. Some parents are also worried that the bats could spread dangerous diseases.

While bats do carry diseases, these are only transferred via scratches or bites, so the community risk level is low, said Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland’s Des Boyland.
