Roundhay Park is home to one of what must be one of the world's weirdest memorials.

Just off the landing stage in the park's Upper Lake - but too far away to be read from the bank - is a plaque dedicated to the memory of a swan which died over 20 years ago.

Siba was clearly a popular swan

This is why Ed Sheeran is the first major artist to play at Roundhay Park since 2006
Siba, one of the park's resident swans, was killed by a dog in March 1998 - an incident very few people will be able to recall.

An unknown person funded the eccentric plaque and placed it in the lake.

Photographer Martin Child recently photographed the rusty tribute and enlarged the dedication on it.
