At least eight swans have died in a Glasgow park following a bird flu outbreak.The bodies of the birds were spotted at Knightswood Park in the city by a concerned member of the public, who reported it to the council on Tuesday.

As reported by Glasgow Live, signs have been up at the beauty spot for a while warning the public not feed the birds as it encourages them to flock and spread the bug.However, it would appear the warning has been ignored as footage appeared to show bread piled up at the waterline.

The devastating news comes after an outbreak of avian flu killed 23 swans at Hogganfield Loch, in the north-east of the city, in November.The council say six swans were found dead and two others had to be put down.

They added it is feared the outbreak could have a severe impact on the bird population.Guidance has been issued to the public to keep dogs on leads, remain on footpaths and to steer clear of sick or dead birds.
