StorksAN army of storks has moved into churches across Castilla y Leon, to the frustration of bishops and choirboys alike.

Now church bosses have appealed to the government to bend environmental laws in order for some 50 nests to be removed from a number of churches.

They insist that the birds are damaging the structure of church spires and roofs.

There are an estimated 12,000 stork couples currently living in Spain.
