Cygnet saved from harm with toy cones in Bath
A "confused" cygnet found sitting in the middle of the road in Bath has been saved from harm with the help of some toy cones.
The young swan was spotted apparently having a snooze in St Mark's Road in Widcombe. Another cygnet was discovered trapped in a nearby cemetery.
PCSO Mike Symonds said it was not the first time he had dealt with swans so he and his colleague knew what to do.
It is thought the coloured cones came from a nearby playgroup.
"We put blankets over their heads to pacify them and carried them to the canal," Mr Symonds said.
Fellow PCSO Ashley Bintcliffe said: "They were young birds but pretty big and strong.
"Luckily they stayed quite calm, although one tried to give me a good pecking and the other left Mike needing a change of trousers.
"They seemed happy enough to be back on water and soon paddled off. Hopefully they'll stay off the roads in future."
