Police in the west of England have had to deal with their own Hot Fuzz incident after two swans went for a stroll.
Two cygnets paused during their flight to land in a cemetery in Bath, Somerset, and started wandering across paths and roads. They were chased down by PCSOs – just like in the hit 2007 film starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost – before one bird decided to take a nap in the middle of the road.
Concerned for the bird’s safety, PCSOs Ashley Bintcliffe and Mike Symonds surrounded it with cones for its own protection. The swans were then wrapped in blankets before being taken to a nearby canal and set free by the two officers.
