A heartbreaking video showing a swan picking through plastic shows just how bad the waste problem has become in the UK.
Video footage shows the white bird moving the rubbish with its beak as it tries to move through the water in Salford Quays, Manchester Evening News reports.
The sad scene was captured by Stefan Gumbs, an actor and presenter on Unity Radio.
The 29-year-old said: “I was jogging around Media City and the swan was just in the corner moving litter. Everyone was walking past.
