At least 80 swans have been removed from the River Thames as part of a rescue operation following an oil spill that continues to baffle authorities. Thames Water responded to calls at 10:30pm on Friday night to the stretch of river between Windsor Bridge and Eton Bridge. Around 20 volunteers are working to remove the swans from the water and so far approximately 80 have been lifted out. Rescued swans were being pulled from the black water covered in oil reaching all the way up to their necks.
