Police were called out last week in Telford to reports of a swan causing "traffic chaos" on the A442 at Hortonwood.

Members of the public were concerned that it was running loose on the road.

A wildlife rescue volunteer managed to catch the bird and place it in a specially designed "swan bag" to carry it to a safer location.
