Gran saves swans by feeding them everyday
A devoted gran has taken hundreds of starving swans under her wing - after workmen destroyed their habitat at a beauty spot where they lived.
Irene Hodges, 70, has forked out almost £20,000 on special seeds and pellets which she has given to the birds every day for the last ten years.
She has helped save hundreds of birds and now regularly looks after a flock of more than 50 at Chasewater pool, Staffs.
Her devotion to the flock has led her to being affectionately nicknamed “Swan lady Chasewater”.
