Children and adults alike went quackers in Wymondham and Attleborough over the Easter weekend for races with a difference.

Attleborough Boxing Club braved the dreary weather on Good Friday to watch with bated breath as plastic birds sailed over the finish line for their duck race.

More than £550 was raised for the club, as birds including Orville, Puddle and Sunshine floated down the stream.

Prizes of £100 and £25 were awarded to those lucky enough to have selected the winning ducks.

Meanwhile, dozens of eager families pulled on their wellies and headed to Wymondham Abbey for the annual Easter duck race.

Stalls, games and food were on hand as visitors lined up along the river to watch the five races - The Green Dragon Grand National, Henley House Regatta Race, Ward-Robes Two Mile Chase, Rosedale Challenge Cup and Lloyds Bank 250th Anniversary Sprint - unfold.
