A swan and its cygnets were spotted walking along an Oxford road this morning.

A council workman had to guide them off the Botley Road to safety as cars drove by.

One driver, David Brown, pulled over and managed to take some photos of the birds.

He said: "This morning at 9.20am I was driving west on the Botley Road when I noticed a Swan and his/her cygnets strolling up the road. I pulled over and by chance had my camera handy.

"A council workman was bravely guiding them to safety as they turned off the road and towards the river at Osney."
