A SWAN on the loose in Sutton Courtenay kept police busy last week, as they tried to lead it away from a main road.

The ‘very large’ swan was spotted blocking a road in Sutton Courtney on Tuesday, September 24.

Posting on Twitter, Thames Valley Police for South Oxfordshire and the Vale said it was “a Hot Fuzz moment” for local officers who had to herd the wandering waterfowl.

They added: “PCSO’s Haynes and Quarterman would like to thank a very kind gentleman who helped us with this very large swan that was blocking the road in Sutton Courtenay.”
