Alert over swan attacking prams
Parents are being warned to beware of a male swan which attacks prams and pushchairs in a Gloucestershire park.

Signs have gone up around the lake at Stratford Park, Stroud, urging parents to keep young children well away from the rogue bird.

A council spokeswoman said swans often became aggressive and territorial during the mating season.

The bird and its mate are said to have started building a nest and may soon produce cygnets.
