Swan brings traffic to a halt on road bridge
7:42pm Friday 16th August 2013 in News
A SWAN caused a flap on a its namesake bridge in the middle of Weymouth.
The bird brought traffic to a standstill when it landed on the Swannery road bridge over Radipole Lake.
Motorists watched as the creature waddled along the carriageway before Andy Cross decided to come to its rescue and help it across the road.
Leanne Cross, who took pictures of the drama, said: “We were driving over the bridge when I noticed this.
“No-one wanted to move over or stop to help it across the road so as I drove closer I slowed to a stop to hold back the traffic and my husband got out and guided it over to the side so it could join it mates.
“There are some caring people left in the world.”
