Queen's swans die from bird flu

More than 20 swans from the Queen's flock have died and several more are "dying at the moment" amid fears they have been infected by bird flu.
Seven of the dead birds have been sent for testing to establish whether avian flu is responsible.
Defra confirmed it is investigating a suspected finding of avian influenza in wild mute swans in Berkshire.
David Barber, the Queen's Swan Marker, said "quite a percentage" of the flock had died.
