Noel Fitzpatrick lives up to his name

Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick lived up to his name after rescuing a swan in Dublin yesterday.

The TV star, who's from Laois but lives in the UK, was in the capital to do a series of interviews for his new book, when he spotted a swan dodging traffic on a busy road in Donnybrook.

The vet managed to stop traffic and lead it along a footpath before picking it up in his jacket and carrying it to the nearby canal.

He tweeted a video of the rescue with the caption 'mission accomplished'.
