Chester's ‘flying squad’ has been back in action after rescuing another stray duck family from out of harm’s way.
The Chronicle took calls about stranded ducklings on the roundabout close to Blacon Police Station near the Mercedes dealership at the end of last week.
And nightclub promoter Mike Hannigan tweeted police because his wife Charlotte had also spotted the duck family in their precarious location.
Mike, who runs the student Beans night at Cruise , tweeted on Friday (April 15): “@PoliceChester duck family needs rescuing from Parkgate Road roundabout #justdowntheroad #pleasesavethem.”
Chester Police later tweeted back “@mikehannigan75 #savedthem #hereforyou” together with a photo of the ducklings huddled together in a cardboard box. A further posting showed a photo of the duck family back on the canal with the line: “Ducklings reunited with mummy duck. #happyending.”
Mr Hannigan responded: “@PoliceChester Haha!! Mrs Hannigan is very happy! Great work guys!! #hereforus #hereforducks.”
During the previous incident, Chester Revolution barman Pete Mikulin and a male PCSO rescued a duck and her 13 ducklings from Foregate Street who were released by the pond in Grosvenor Park .
