Police in Derbyshire believe that someone may have shot wild swans with a gas canister before going on to pluck the feathers from the carcasses.

They've received several reports of dead swans in the Attenborough Gravel Pits area.

Swans are protected by law and it's an offence to intentionally injure, take or kill a wild swan.

Police are asking the public to report any suspicious behaviour.

”It potentially looks as if they had been shot by a gas canister and it is clear from the carcasses that the feathers had been plucked."

Hospital apologises for death of 'over-sedated' patient - full report

Nottingham's Queen's Medical Centre has apologised after the death of an elderly man with dementia who was given too many sedatives.

Peter Ryley, who was 76 and from Long Eaton, died after falling while on sedatives in January 2011. Last week, the trust which runs the hospital was one of 18 identified as 'high risk' by the Chief Inspector of Hospitals. Lee Comley reports.

'The medication had been increasing all the way through'

Andrew Riley, Peter's son, said that although "the hospital staff themselves seemed fine it was things that came to light afterwards" that struck him.

He added: "It wasn't until after he had his fatal injury...(that) I noticed his medical notes at the end of his bed and there were all these different types of medication that he'd been given...

"When we had the coroner's inquest it came to light that the medication hadn't just been regular, it had been increasing all the way through."
