Guards outfox vulpine swan-hunters

A swan, exhausted after being chased by a skulk of foxes at Tideway’s site at Greenwich Pumping Station, was rescued by security guards and safely returned to Deptford Creek.

The team spotted the swan close to the site’s vehicle entrance gate, where it appeared stressed, tired and potentially injured.

And thanks to their quick thinking, the hunted swan was ushered into an on-site security hut, where it was able to rest and recuperate with some bread and water.

The swan was eventually returned to the Deptford Creek, which runs next to Greenwich Pumping Station.
