Distressed swan rescued from Bridgwater Canal
A distressed swan has been rescued from a canal in Somerset after it partially swallowed a fishing hook and line.
A boat crew from Burnham-on-Sea rescued the cygnet after a volunteer from wildlife charity Secret World saw the bird in Bridgwater Canal on Tuesday.
After being captured with a net, the bird was taken to a vet for treatment.
Volunteer Mervyn Gratton said: "The bird was in a lot of pain, having attempted to swallow a discarded hook and line."
