Mistle thrushes pick Leicester traffic lights to nest

A family of birds, thought to be mistle thrushes, have set up home on a set of traffic lights.

Spotted by a passer-by in the centre of Leicester, it is thought the birds are using the heat from the lights to keep warm.

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds says the birds are usually found in woodland, parkland and gardens.
