Have your say

A swan is believed to have been attacked and killed by a dog in a canal close to an Ilkeston care home at the weekend.

RSPCA inspectors were called to the incident close to Canal Vue care home in Awsworth Road on Saturday but arrived too late and could not find the bird.
A spokesman for the RSPCA said: “The RSPCA did receive a call regarding a dead swan at the location.

“An inspector did attend the location - but the swan’s body had been removed and all that remained were some feathers on the floor.
