A colony of sea birds has turned its back on Suffolk's clifftops to nest at the county's nuclear power plant.

Kittiwakes, small gulls which breed mainly in the North and West of England, have been found nesting at the top of a tower at Sizewell.

Experts at at the plant say it is a rather unusual choice of nesting site for the birds.

But the station's owners have hired environmental assistants to make sure the kittiwakes are in no danger.
