Thousands of people – and thousands of ducks – flocked to the riverside in Norwich for a special charity challenge.
The Great Norwich Duck Race, celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, drew huge crowds to Riverside on Sunday afternoon as part of the Lord Mayor's Celebrations.
En masse the rubber ducks took to the water for the race from Lady Julian Bridge to Millennium Bridge, with people lining the pathways, bridges and steps to watch the action.
