Police have stepped up patrols at a beauty spot in Milton Keynes after a number of swans were discovered to have gone missing.
Four of the protected birds were found beheaded at Mount Farm Lake near Bletchley in April.
Now Thames Valley Police say a further 32 swans are missing.

I would appeal to any person who has seen anyone or anything suspicious in the area, or with any information about the incidents to call police immediately via 101.
