A kind-hearted Dublin bus driver stopped traffic this morning to allow a swan cross the road with her young chicks.

The driver of the 67 bus stopped on his way from Merrion Square in Dublin to Maynooth in Co Kildare.

He put on the hazard lights of the bus and allowed the swan's young babies to waddle across the road after her.

The young chicks were still grey and fluffy - they only turn white as they grow older.

Marie O'Driscoll told that it was 'a heart lifting sight'.

A line of cars can be seen behind the bus as the young swan family make their way across the road.
