The elegant creature was believed to have escaped from the grounds of Norwich Cathedral when it was spotted in Tombland, not quite taking to the road like a duck to water.

A spokesman for Norfolk police said officers attended and helped get it back from where it came.

The spokesman said: “We were called to Tombland this morning at about 8.20am following a call from a member of the public who reported a swan in the middle of the road.

“It appeared to have escaped from the grounds of the cathedral.
