    Six swans found dead in a Derbyshire park are believed to have been killed for their meat, police said.
     
    Officers said the swans had been found by rangers at Alvaston Park in Derby, who believed the birds had been killed by humans, not animals.
     
    Derbyshire Police have increased patrols in the area and asked anyone with information to contact them.
    PC Andy Sudbury said people were "horrified" by what had happened.
