The bird was shot with a metal pellet at a site in March which has been described by the RSPCA as an "infamous air gun hotspot".

The swan is now being cared for by staff at the East Winch rescue centre near King's Lynn.

The RSCPA is appealing for witnesses to come forward.

Two police officers found guilty of common assault

Two Cambridgeshire police officers have been found guilty of common assault.

PCs John Richardson, 50, and David Littlemore, 35, both based at Thorpe Wood Police Station, were convicted today following a trial at Luton Magistrates’ Court.

The officers were found to have used excessive force when engaging with a 58-year-old man in Peterborough on August 18 last year.

They will be sentenced on July 28.

We want the public and our own employees to feel confident about raising concerns about the conduct of our officers and staff and we will always investigate these cases thoroughly and ensure prosecutions are brought where appropriate.

All our officers must act within the lawful execution of their duties and on this occasion these officers clearly did not.

The force will now consider the position of the officers and will await sentencing before considering internal misconduct proceedings.

– Detective Superintendent Mark Hodgson
