Wildlife volunteers have carried out a daring night-time rescue on a bridge in Sussex.
The swan is thought to have crash landed on the footbridge which crosses between Shoreham Beach and Shoreham Town Centre.
To make matters worse the bridge is currently closed and rescuers had to close over the security fencing in order rescue the swan which was trapped.
Trevor Weeks and his partner Kathy Martyn from Uckfield, drove the 40 minute drive to Shoreham as local residents were unable to find anyone closer willing to help at that time of night.
Once back on the road side Trevor and Kathy carried the swan across the marshland as far as they could safely in the dark towards the river, before releasing the swan and letting it waddle off back to the safety of the river.
