At approximately 1.45pm on Sunday 13 October, a member of the public called police to report they had witnessed two individuals killing a swan.

It is understood that two male suspects were walking along the canal path throwing bread into the water in a bid to attract the swan towards them. Once the swan was within distance, one of the men is believed to have struck the swan over the head with a length of wood, killing it.

Following the incident, the two left the scene.

Enquiries are ongoing and police have now released CCTV stills of two men they believe could hold vital information.
