PHOTOS: Swans rescued from Thames oil slick

A dedicated team gathered on the Thames to rescue swans hit by a mystery oil slick yesterday afternoon.

The team from Swan Lifeline was called out to Windsor soon after 2.45pm as evidence of the slick began to become obvious along the Thames, where it runs parallel with Barry Avenue towards Windsor Eton Relief Road.

The swan sanctuary's treatment co-ordinator Wendy Hermon used its boat to ferry oil-soaked swans across the river to Cuckoo Weir Island where they could be cleaned.
