Cygnet Rescue at Tottenham Lock

3rd October 2018 – Tottenham Lock

Following a call from the public a team was despatched to Tottenham Lock on the River Lea where a cygnet had managed to get trapped behind the lock gates. Gill and Laurent were in attendance and Laurent had to get the canoe into the water to get the poor chap out from where it was stuck. A video of the final moments is available via this link. Although in a waterlogged state, after a good meal and a dry bed the youngster was none the worse for its ordeal.
