The swan, which brought traffic to a halt in Pyle Street, Newport, Isle of Wight. Picture by Robin Crossley.
YOU’VE heard the one about the chicken — now swans are muscling in on the act.
Traffic was brought to standstill in Pyle Street, Newport, today (Tuesday) when this young swan flew into the middle of the road, almost hitting Tanya Brodie, owner of The Beauty Spot salon, who had just popped outside to fetch something from her car.
Despite the growing queues, the swan appeared to be in no rush, stopping to preen his feathers before slowly wandering off ten minutes later.
