Police A12 roadblock to rescue swan
A SWAN has been rescued from the A12 on the Colchester by-pass.
Police put a rolling roadblock in place on the southbound carriageway after receiving several calls from motorists.
Shortly after 9am drivers reported the swan wandering on the hard shoulder and feared it may head into the road.
Officers managed to capture the swan, believed to be an almost fully matured cygnet, and got it into a police car.
The swan, said to be a little dazed, was later released at Lexden Golf Club.
