Pc Stewart Lamb was able to gather up the animal and take it to safety.
Police said that no accidents or traffic hold-ups were caused by the bird’s intrusion onto the busy carriageway.

“Officers attended at the scene and removed the swan from the road, before taking it to the safety of a nearby pond.”
