A Plymouth scientist has had her entire back tattooed in celebration of the work of Sir David Attenborough - and the love for nature he inspired in her.

She then got the chance to show Sir David the tattoo, when he came to give a talk on birds at her university. Luckily, the great man approved.
Bristol TV star Carol Vorderman has landed a job working alongside astronauts, promoting space science education.
The former Countdown maths wizard, who has a private pilot's licence, will sit on the board of directors for the Challenger Centre for Space Science Education.
The centre was set up to honour the legacy of the Challenger shuttle crew, who were killed in a tragic accident in 1986.
54-year-old Vorderman says she has always been fascinated by space - and her daughter wants to be an astronaut.
The current advice from the National Institute for Health & Clinical Excellence is for pregnant women not to drink during the first 3 months and then no more than one or two units a week.
But according to a new study carried out by Bristol University, drinking just one glass of wine a week during pregnancy can significantly reduce a child's IQ. Our Health Correspondent Rebecca Broxton has been finding out the implications.
Researchers from the University of Bristol have published evidence to suggest drinking as little as one glass of wine a week while pregnant could affect the I.Q of the unborn child.
The collaborative study, between the Universities of Bristol and Oxford, showed that only children that have genes that make them vulnerable to alcohol were affected.
12 hundred children in the UK are born with a cleft lip or palate every year. Little is known about what causes it.
To help provide some definitive answers, the world's biggest ever research programme into the condition has been launched, with Bristol experts leading the project.
