An injured swan is on the road to recovery after calling on local officers at a police station in Arnold for help.

The swan, which officers have named ‘SID’ made his way to the station in Arnot Hill Park this afternoon as he needed help for a poorly leg.

Sid is also a park resident and can often be spotted on the lake.

Once he had made his way to the station, Sid nestled down in the car park, and patiently awaited assistance from the boys in blue.

A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said: “SID was transported in the Police van to the vets. Here he was treated for cuts and sores on his leg and given painkillers.

“We are pleased to announce that SID has been released back onto the pond at Arnot Hill Park where the park rangers will be keeping a watchful eye on him.”

They added: “A big thank-you to Arnold and Carlton vets for helping SID”
