Please read the explanation about this error given by the validator.  Or if there's something unclear about it, feel free to suggest an improvement.

[...] Entity references start with an ampersand (&) and end with a semicolon (;). If you want to use a literal ampersand in your document you must encode it as "&amp;" (even inside URLs!). [...]

So instead of writing ...&src=..., write ...&amp;src=...
