'No luck catching them swans then?' - 'It's just the one swan, actually.'

Life was imitating art when police had to deal with a loose swan yesterday - a scenario reminiscent of a scene from the cult classic film Hot Fuzz.

Welwyn Hatfield North police tweeted: "No one teaches you how to herd rowdy swans in training - he eventually made his way back to the lagoon."

Hot Fuzz, released in 2007, was partially shot in Welwyn Hatfield and features a famous scene where Simon Pegg and Nick Frost end up chasing a loose swan.
