KIND-HEARTED police in Kingswinford could have been accused of swanning around on a job earlier today when they took time out from crime-fighting to give a lost swan a helping hand.

PCSOs Theo Stallard and Karen Copson from Brierley Hill Police Station were called out to help the creature, found wandering around a housing estate, back to the pool in Kingswinford Park.

The job made something of a change from recent car chases response officers from Brierley Hill have been engaged in.
