A protected bird species has halted work on a £3m sewage upgrade in Rainworth.

A nest of pied wagtail birds were discovered in the machinery of a 40-tonne crawler crane last month, and workmen have now been forced to ‘stand down’ the machine because the birds are protected by law.

Another crane is being brought in to replace it.
