Mystery surrounds hundreds of swan feathers found by Long Eaton canal
MYSTERY surrounds how hundreds of feathers appeared by the side of a canal in Long Eaton over the weekend.
Wendy Harrison, who regularly walks by the water next to Tamworth Road, fears they have come from three swans which live on the canal.
Wendy, 74, of Fairlea Close, Long Eaton, said: "I was walking into town to do some shopping when I saw all the feathers. Nearby there were piles of corn and I think they have been tempted out and then it seems they have been plucked right there. I'm fairly certain they were swan feathers as some were brown and white, the same colour as the young swan."
Borough councillor Roland Hosker feared the swans had been eaten. "It is hard to believe that someone has had them for dinner. Families' finances are not good and if it is leading to this, then it's awful."
