Dramatic rescue filmed after swan hits the shops in Lincoln

Stunned Lincoln retail staff drafted in the help of the RSPCA over the weekend after a swan found itself trapped in a compact shop courtyard.

Filmed by staff at community music charity Soundlincs, the slightly aggravated swan was carted away from the enclosed space behind Agatha Boutique on High Street by an RSPCA worker on Sunday, January 3.

Soundlincs, Scope and Agatha teams worked together after spotting the bird outside their office windows.

Looking slightly fed up, the swan was fastened into protective transporter and carried out through Agatha boutique to be later released in a spot away from January sale shoppers.
