A wildlife discovery has put a halt to work on a new 14 million pound police headquarters in Durham.
Ecologists have found Great Crested Newts near the site, and as the species is protected, the police need permission to move them before they can start building work.
Officers are becoming extremely frustrated by the delays and say that it is costing them two thousand pounds a day.
