Swan Of The Week

Once upon a time it was fashionable to have three flying ducks hanging on the wall. An elderly woman in Barton-in-Fabis in Nottinghamshire went one better when she had a swan-shaped hole put into her double-glazed bathroom window.

It wasn’t a deliberate choice on her part. A swan, on its way to the nearby River Trent, flew straight at it, smashing it to smithereens and landing in a heap in her room. Fortunately, the woman, who had been standing at the window admiring the view, had stepped away and avoided injury.

The swan, though, was not so lucky and had to be taken away by the RSPCA to be patched up.

It should have gone to Specsavers.
